This delicious sauce is made with a small Sicilian tomato called “pomorodino cillieggino” whose root name comes from “ciliegia”, or cherry in Italian, for its strong resemblance to the aforementioned fruit. These sun-ripened, semi-soft tomatoes impart the sauce with an intense and brilliant red colour, predominant and typical aromatic notes of the fresh tomato puree, which associate extremely well with raw extra virgin olive oil, and an extremely pleasant, slightly sweet taste. This sauce is suitable for regular use in all diets as well as suitable for young children.
