Origins and History

Di Amante or diamante? in both cases, this name evokes positive and important things. Considered separately, the two words (“di amante”, in Italian means a lover or enthusiast) bring to mind a glowing passion, and not just amorous passion. In essence, it is the passion that moves the world, whether for another person, art, or—as in this case—a profession. Without it, nothing would exist.

The term “diamante” (diamond in Italian), on the other hand, evokes something precious, unique and that will “last forever”.

Pastificio di Amante, family-run for two generations, was born of the nostalgia of the ancient flavors of traditional Italian cuisine, with a highly meaningful name, a real expression of what it represents: culinary jewels made with love. In fact the production is of the highest quality.

Thanks to selection of the best raw materials and the use of traditional production processes, di Amante pasta has made a name for itself over the years as an excellent product, which preserves all of the nutrients of the durum wheat semolina and maintains the characteristics of fresh pasta when cooked.

di Amante pasta is aimed at specialised retail outlets, professionals in the catering and banqueting industry and niche markets in Italy and abroad that put quality first.

di Amante Company is sensitive to environmental issues and has got the organic certification.

 

Awards


The “iTQi Superior Taste Award” is the only stamp of quality in taste granted by food and drink opinion leaders that are Michelin starred Chefs and Sommeliers. The iTQi jury, regrouping 17 different nationalities, is composed of members of the most prestigious culinary institutions of Europe such as, the Maîtres Cuisiniers of France, the Académie Culinaire de France, the Academy of Culinary Arts, Euro-Toques, the Federazione Italiana Cuochi, Nordic Chefs Association, the Associaciones des Cocineros de España, the World Master Chefs Society, the Verband der Köche Deutschlands.

Similarly to the famous Michelin guide of gastronomy, iTQi does not organize a competition but rewards products on their own merits. A sensory analysis based on the intensity of gustatory pleasure!

During the tests, each product is subjected to an individual blind tasting according to a rigorous sensory analysis procedure. Every evaluated product is scrutinized in the shape of a sensory analysis report for which criteria such as olfaction, vision, taste, after taste, texture, etc. are all taken into account by each Jury member.
