Locally grown and milled heirloom wholegrain wheat.

Senatore Capelli is a durum, an ancestor to modern hard amber durum. Named after Senator Raffaele Cappelli from the Italian region of Abruzzo, he was a promoter in the early twentieth century of agrarian reform which led to the distinction between hard and soft wheats. With striking looks due to its tall black-bearded stalks, Senatore Cappelli is drought resistant wheat with a full bodied flavor from the Italian region of Abruzzo and intensely aromatic. Durum wheat generally is high in protein and low in gluten. It is used in pizza crust, bread, pasta and foccacia.

Frassenetto's light bran and medium hardness make it a wonderful whiole grain flour that can be substituted for unbleached all purpose flour in most recipes. It has a clean light flavor with a warm toast aroma when being milled or in the oven.

Great for baguettes, pizza dough breads and more. Senatore Capelli is beloved by profession artisan bread makers as well as discerning home bakers
