We make La Fonte Tomato Puree Passata (12x24oz) with selected round tomato varieties grown in sunny and fertile Central and Southern Italy.
These tomatoes are harvested between August and September at their full ripening stage.
We sort, sieve, and cook with a pinch of salt at low temperature.
Then we create a smooth sauce with rich texture and bright red color.
