The eggplant used to produce the eggplant sauce of Azienda Agricola I Sapori dei Monti, is the result of an attentive selection made by the Ciarrocchi family, started about twenty years ago. The seed selected over the years is taken from the most beautiful and shiny eggplants; continuous reproduction of this seed has allowed the Ciarrocchi family to have the best eggplants with a more delicate flavour. These eggplant are used to create a tasty but not aggressive sauce, to be spread on toasted bread but also to toss pasta; its delicate flavour does not cover up other flavours, rather it intensifies them.
Now in its third generation, the Ciarrocchi family has set up a farm that combines attentive care for cultivation, meticulous controls and attention for processing of the recipes of its own family tradition. The company, "I Sapori dei Monti," was born from the desire to share with friends the delicacies the Ciarrocchi family has created for years, following the traditional recipes. The great quality of jelly, sauces and preserves, the typical flavour of fresh vegetables, the genuine texture of fresh fruit, and the harmonious taste donated by a few simple spices, immediately impressed the tasters and a simple sharing became an exciting job!
