A single estate organic tomato passata, the tomatoes are organically grown in the open rolling plains of the Maremma, southern Tuscany and harvested in August for bottling. This passata is outstandingly fresh as it is made within 24 hours of selected ripe tomatoes being picked from the vine. How rare it is to get a food made from ripe organic tomatoes. With real basil leaves passata di pomodoro is an essential kitchen basic in all Italian cooking and is indispensable as a foundation for different sauces and sugos. As well, use as an additive to soup. The real bright, beautiful color is the sign of the great nutritional value of ripened-on-the-vine tomatoes.
