AZIENDA AGRICOLA MANCINI - Contrada San Rustico - 63815 Monte San Pietrangeli (FM) - Italia
This is the philosophy we adopted in the choice of our pasta.¬†We are not satisfied with a good product, we always try the best selecting craftsmen with a willingness to treat the smallest details.¬†We look for producers motivated by passion, whose skills are handed down for generations: from the choice of blends and semolina to pasta production process.
Respect for these "Masters"; and for their product convinced us to arrange a conditioned area, at the temperature of 16¬įC, in our warehouse, with the specific intent to preserve for our customers the organoleptic properties of pasta.
Mancini's farm is a rural reality for over 60 years, since grandfather Mariano, besides the cultivation of cereals, was engaged in threshing grain with ancient machinery steered by the first models of tractors on the market.
In the late 70's, Giuseppe has increased the size of Mancini's farm from 20 hectares to the present 70 acres.
For about ten years Massimo, after graduating in Agricultural Science, has begun a process of selection of varieties of wheat and refinement of farming techniques to achieve a higher quality product.
Since 2001 the company decided to treat in first person its wheat, with the collaboration of a master pasta maker.
All pasta is produced exclusively from cultivated farms according to strict rules for reducing environmental impact.
Three different varieties are usually cultivated (San Carlo, Levante, Ariosto), and once gathered are blended together.
The grain is stored in a structure with a cold preservation process, without chemical additives, whose beneficial are both to the health and both to the flavor of the final product.
The flour obtained from grinding is then processed, over a few days, with systems that are based faithfully on tradition.
Bronze dies are used, which give to the outer surface of the dough a high level of porosity and roughness for a better grip of the sauce and a better uniformity of cooking.
Pasta, once kneaded and extruded, is dried on wooden frames (for short pasta) or on rods (for long pasta) at a temperature of 40¬į, for about 45-60 hours depending on sizes.
This technique allows to maintain the original flavor of the grain with all its organoleptic characteristics and at the same time gives to pasta a particular texture and a good cooking resistance.

BIRRIFICIO UN TERZO - Via Giacomo Matteotti, 19 - 13899 Pralungo (BI) - Italia
The 2011 edition of the Slow Food "guide to Italian beers" reviews our beer supplier as follows:
"The Un Terzo brewery came into being in November 2009 in Candelo, a village a few kilometres outside Biella. It was the brainchild of a sommelier with a passion for beer, who had been home-brewing since 1990. Surname ‚Äď Terzo, Christian name - Enrico ‚Äď (ENRICO TERZO - HENRY III, just like the king of France).
A certain self-irony lies behind the choice of name for the brewery and the beers‚Ä¶‚Ä¶‚Ä¶ which, whether it be thanks to the excellent water of the Biellese, or the skill and "militancy" of the brewer, or maybe even the helping hand of Leonardo di Vincenzo, really bowled us over"
Produced in a small, 4 hectolitre plant.... they range from Belgian style beers to products influenced by American artisanal beers. They are all top fermented and then re-fermented in 0.75lt bottles"
In the above-mentioned guide book the Duca d‚ÄôO, Mater and Canderium beers have all been awarded 4 stars.

In order to make you fully understand how much this has been a very careful selection we think it is better to fully report what Eugenio told us about the philosophy that supervised his work.
"I always turn my attention to those working on excellence, not choosing the path of devotion and staying away from the ¬ęusual names¬Ľ, often the more celebrated and familiar, rarely the best, if not only in marketing and price.
To make a clear choice, I decided to be in no way connected to the rhetoric of ultra-known labels, but to tell the wine tales of the little and often talented producers, sometimes unknown or just emerging, not illuminated by the artificial light of the media spotlight.
I only work with winemakers who prefer quality over quantity and who make of locality and typicality an added value.
Tenants oriented towards the production of a few excellent bottles produced with essential, but very typical, wine technics.
Tenants who best represent the major geographical areas of Italy wine making and who posses the ability to give big emotions with their exclusive labels".
