In a coastal town of Sicily, Basilio Castrovinci settled in the 1970s and founded a family-run company that today captures in jars some of the best anchovies in the world following artisan style, producing a premium range of products from the locally caught fish, renowned for their quality, freshness and authentic taste.
The anchovies in Castrovinci products are selected by hand right off the boat and processed immediately using traditional methods to preserve their freshness and flavour. Only quality local ingredients are added, such as Sicilian sea salt for curing and traditional sunflower oil for preservation. The resulting flavour and texture is one true to Sicily and the Mediterranean islands.
