The character of the land, altitude and exposure make the soils of San Vito in Umbria ideal for the cultivation of Italian castelluccio lentils.
Following the dictates of organic farming and generational family traditions, Casa Corneli produces an exceptional quality of Umbrian lentils that results in a creamy cooked texture while still holding their distinct shape. Can be cooked without pre-soaking and because they require a short 20-30 minute simmer to soften, these lentils retain their rich, nutty taste and rustic simplicity that doesn't necessarily need a lot extras to make them flavorful. They are meaty and never get mushy preferring to drink up the perfumes of the herbs, spices, or cooking aromatics rather than soaking in them to create an immensely comforting, satisfying dish. Processed without the use of preservatives, additives or aromas.
