The selection of high quality tomatoes for our “Sweetheart Sauces” (Salse del Cuore) begins in the very same crop fields by choosing the most suitable organic soils, the best sun exposure and the best varieties. In the height of summer, favouring the sweetness as the best characteristic for a ripe tomato, tomatoes are harvested using mechanical means, and then they are processed within the following twenty-four hours.
To keep all the freshness and fragrance of perfectly ripe and fresh-picked vegetables, processing must take place as soon as possible. After several rounds of washings, tomatoes are manually selected and immediately turned into juice, pulp or sauce, undergoing short cooking times and at low temperatures; that is essential to preserve their aroma. Even the other ingredients such as garlic, onion, carrot, celery and chilli are always fresh; in particular basil is grown by us with great care and harvested by Renza with loving care every hour and then manually added to each container.
