Formaggio Kitchen Exclusive

Country of Origin: Italy

Julie, the wine buyer for our South End shop, discovered this tiny producer of confettura, mostarda and sauces when she visited Vin Italy in 2004. Lo Spaventapasseri is part of the Trimilii group - mostly wine producers who abide by organic principles in their production. The word Spaventapasseri means scarecrow in Italian and the name reflects the rustic agricultural foundation of the business that Simone and Cristina Roveglia have created.

They are located in Piedmont, in the region of Asti, in the town of Mombaruzzo, where their organic ingredients are all grown on their land.

Cugna is also known as Cogna or as Mostarda d'Uva. No matter what you call it, this is a unique traditional condiment from the Piedmont region of Italy. At its base is the grape must that is blended with nuts and fruit and cooked slowly to a deep color and intense flavor that blends the tart and tannic flavors of the grapes with the sweetness of the fruits and the round flavors of the nuts. Traditionally, this condiment is traditionally paired with bolliti misti (boiled meats) and with the fresh robiola of the region.
