San Marzano Tomatoes DOP with Basil
We searched high and low for the perfect jarred tomatoes,and we finally found it! It is our pleasure to introduce San Marzano DOP tomatoes from Casa Marrazzo. These are the real deal- tomatoes from the famed Agro Sarnese Nocerino region of the Sarno River valley near Mount Vesuvius in Campagna. Deep red in color, these very special plum tomatoes are bright with acidity and carry a distinctive earthyness. Seasoned here with just a touch of basil, this jar needs little more before it's ready to become bolognase, arrabiata or even tomato soup.
Casa Marazzo is a third-generation family business that preserves the flavors of a generous and unique territoir. Each jar of tomatoes contains the values and memories that are handed down from generation to generation. Sitting in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, the volcanic soil is known to give extra sweetness to everything that grows in the region. The passion of the Marazzo family is punctuated by a reverential respect for the raw material: tomatoes grown around Mt. Vesuvius, and by the wise and fundamental memories of those who preceded them. The Marazzo's listen closely to the to the seasons, preserving their tomatoes in a natural way without alterations of the true and typical flavors, and take care of the environment as a heritage to be left to one's children.
