Gigli is a typical Tuscan pasta made from Tuscan durum wheat in the traditional artisanal way. Gigli pasta is made using the so-called “Bronze-drawn” method, in which the pasta is pressed into its shape faster than normal. In the method, the paste has a special, slightly rougher structure than usual and is dried at a low temperature. Due to the roughness, however, the pasta absorbs more of the sauce’s flavors. The cooking time of Gigli pasta is only 4 minutes, and it is particularly suitable for fast-growing vegetable- or meat-based portions.
Antico Pastificio Morelli is a Tuscan pasta maker that respects the doctrines of traditional pasta making, starting as early as 1860. The factory is known for its first-class pastas, which utilize wheat germ.
Wheat germ is the part of the grain that retains the best vitamins and plant proteins in wheat. Unlike many other manufacturers, Morell's method of grinding flour preserves wheat germ, which also creates its unique taste.
