Durum wheat Senatore Cappelli comes from the North African population “Jenah Ratifah” – inhabitants of the same areas where the Romans used to cultivate durum wheat more than 2000 years ago – selected in 1915 by Nazareno Strampelli and dedicated to an Abruzzese Senator, with the same name, who revolutionized the farming methods of Italian’s durum wheat. This variety has been cultivated for decades (1920-1950) through all South of Italy: during these years, it has represented the 60% of the wheat production.
The height of the stalk (140/160 cm) can cause the lodging of the crop, but it guarantees good resistance to weeds. The roots develop in direct proportion to the height of the stem (140/160) allowing the plant to reach the deepest layers of soil, which are also the richest in nutrients.
The stone ground process allows to obtain a flour rich in taste and perfume.
This flour is ideal to prepare bread and pasta.
