San Marzano tomatoes are characterized by their intense red colour and their elongated shape compared to other Italian varieties. They are also sweeter, fleshier, less acidic and contain fewer seeds. Favuzzi's San Marzano tomatoes are packed in a particularly thick and smooth coulis, lightly seasoned with a basil leaf.
Since they are fleshy and have few seeds, San Marzano tomatoes are the ideal ingredient for any tomato-based sauce. With their subtle basil taste, they are delicious in a pizza sauce – in fact, they are the variety used in Naples, the birthplace of Italian pizza.
To receive the San Marzano designation, tomatoes must be grown in Italy's Campania region, within one of the 41 approved municipalities, the main ones being Agro Sarnese-Nocerino, Acerrano-Nolano, Pompeiana-Stabiese and Montorese. The unique taste of San Marzano tomatoes comes from a specific terroir exclusive to the volcanic lands at the foot of the Vesuvio, blessed with a mild Mediterranean climate. The code printed on the lid provides information about the harvest: it includes a company identifier (Favuzzi's producer), a letter (determined by Italy's Ministry of Economic Development to indicate the year of the harvest) and a series of 3 digits representing the date of production.
Ingredients: San Marzano peeled tomatoes, San Marzano tomato purée, basil leaf.
