Gioie di Fattoria Organic Passata Tomato Sauce - 500ml
This bottle of tomato sauce is a must have in any pantry. It is delicious on its own but can be used as a base for a variety of quick pasta sauces. It is made in in the town of Controguerra in the Teramo province of Northern Abruzzo (just below Le Marche). The Gioie di Fattoria farm is run by Giulio Amadio. Giulio grows wheat, olives and grapes all of which are grown organically and each of which is transformed into incredible pasta, olive oil and wine.
Giulio also makes a beautiful olive oil. Both his tomato sauce and his oil are perfect pairings with any of his pastas made with Saragolla wheat: bucatini, ceppe, fusilli, linguine, mezzemaniche, penne, spaghetti, strascinati, tagliatelle and troccoli or with farro: conchiglie, mezzemaniche, penne and spaghetti.

Gioie di Fattoria
In the northern hills of Abruzzi, near the border with Le Marche, Giulio Amadio grows grains, tomatoes, olives and grapes. All of this is grown organically and each product of the land is transformed into beautiful pastas, sauces, olive oils and wines.
We first learned of Gioie when Gemma visited the vineyards of Stefania Pepe just across the street from Gioie's property. We heard rave reports of the quality of his ingredients (especially his farro) and of the quality of his finished product. We find all of his pastas to be rustic, toothsome and flavorful - like a whole new category of pasta that was just waiting to be introduced to the US! We are happy to facilitate this introduction.
