Paolo Petrilli Organic Tomato Passata 1kg
The super-sweet organic peeled tomatoes used to make this luxurious passata are said to be the finest San Marzano tomatoes in the world! Organically grown in Puglia (just outside the PDO region) Paolo Petrilli tomatoes are the choice of top chefs around the world, served in Italy's finest restaurants and in London's River Cafe'.
The crop comes from a limited production of 5 hectares of tomatoes a year to ensure the best possible, top quality product. The San Marzano are hand picked, simply placed in boiling water for a few seconds, hand peeled and then strained in stainless steel strainers to remove all the liquid. The passata is then preserved without any preservatives or colourants in a simple glass jar with just a leaf or two of fresh basil.
Full of the flavour of southern Italian sunshine, incredibly dense and sweet, this passata makes an extra special pasta sauce or an indulgent topping for pizza!

The Petrilli Estate in the province of Foggia, Northern Puglia has a reputation for producing some of the finest organic tomatoes in Italy. The Estate has been owned by the Petrilli family since early 1900 when it was bought by Paolo, the Grandfather of the current owner. Using only non-intensive, organic farming methods, the Estate, which also produces fine wines, sells out of their very special, sun-ripened tomato crop every year.
