Raving about a delicious Italian meal but cant quite figure out what created that magnificent flavour? More often than not the mysterious ingredient that made the meal so memorable was anchovies. These small fish pack a huge punch in flavour and act as a backbone to many Italian recipes.

 

Castrovinci anchovies are authentic Italian anchovies. They are fished out of Sicilian waters, and carry a well-known, distinct taste and delicate texture.   This style of anchovy product is most known for its saltiness, which makes it a perfect cooking ingredient, and of course the classic topping on a pizza.

Castrovinci


Castrovinci

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.
