The artisan who made it
Fontanella is a family that has been cultivating and selecting the best Italian tomatoes since 1957.
Passion and experience are their values. Fontanella selects the fields in which to grow the best quality tomatoes and they work them as our grandparents did, using the same tools they were using, smell and touch.
All their tomatoes, not only the San Marzano DOP, come from Italy, from the sunny southern Italian regions, and only the best and ripe tomatoes end in their tins. The secret of any tomato based sauce is in the ripeness of the tomatoes, if the tomatoes are ripe the resulting product is sweet and do not need anything to balance the acidity, any sweetener, needed when the tomatoes are unripe. Fontanella is a true and authentic italian family before a company, and with each tin, they bring only the best Italian tomatoes.
