This superior dried pasta has P.G.I. (Protected Geographical Indication) a trademark of the European Union which guarantees that a product has to comply with strict production specifications.
Linguine are shaped like flattened spaghetti or tongues (lingue). Due to their flattened, slightly convex shape, linguine are one of the long cut pastas best at absorbing the sauce.
The dough is made using slow bronze drawing semolina and water from Monti Lattari which allows the pasta to be porous and so to better soak in sauces.
