Piangrillo’s organic farm stretches on the hill of Pianogrillo where old lava stone lilies dating back to the 3rd century AD still reamain. From the ancient baroque of Pianogrillo, today the area has been transformed into a modern farm by their descendants, who still look after and manage the farm. Organic farming is practiced throughout their land and the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers are strictly banned. The average altitude of the olive groves are 350 meters above sea level, providing fresh and airy nights even throughout the summer. The entire area of the property is located along the Gulfi area which is a protected designation of land "Monti Iblei".

This is Pianogrillo's powerful tomato concentrate. It has the deep aroma of a sauce that’s been slowly cooking for hours. It has a dense, creamy texture and the superb taste of tomatoes dried in the Sicilian sun - a lightly salty, sweet flavour with a powerful umami punch that wakes up your taste buds. Add a small amount to sauces, or spread over roasted meat or meatloaf, or anywhere else you’d like to dial up the tomato flavour!
