Pastificio Gentile ‘Vesuvio’ are named after the volcano, and the connection is reflected in their ‘volcano shape’. They are ideally paired with meat-based ragus. Made with high-quality semolina wheat, Pastificio Gentile pastas are renowned for their golden color. The bronze cut gives the pasta a rough, porous texture, which is synonymous with quality. Established in 1876, Pastiﬁcio Gentile is one of the historic artisanal factories that made the city of Gragnano famous around the world for its pasta.
