Paccasassi, the dialect name for sea fennel, is a wild growing aromatic herb typical of the Conero Riviera. With an iodized taste and strong citrus notes, the leaves have hints of fennel, carrot, and lemon. It also has many nutritional virtues thanks to the high quantity of carotenoids, flavonoids, and vitamins.

Wild sea fennel grows spontaneously along the coasts of the Mediterranean and northern Europe. Its trade was flourishing in the old continent until the end of the nineteenth century and its use has ancient attestations. Shakespeare in King Lear and Melville in Moby Dick also mention it. The consumption of sea fennel was particularly popular among sailors to prevent scurvy, thanks to its richness in vitamin C. It has additional excellent nutritional qualities and contains beneficial substances: polyphenols and omega-3 fatty acids. It began to disappear due to indiscriminate harvesting and, even today, in the Conero Regional Park and some areas of Italy and Europe, sea fennel is listed among the protected plant species.

Protected by the Conero Natural Park legislation, which protects biodiversity, Rinci grows Paccasassi within the Park, their natural habitat, and brings them back to our tables.

They are ideal served on toast in combination with salami, anchovies, smoked fish, or dairy products. They are excellent paired with main courses or meat, fish, and salads entrees.

Paccasassi can be combined with many ingredients. They can enrich simple recipes and be the protagonists of more elaborate dishes. They have great potential as a condiment for pasta courses. Our pasta preparations contain all the taste of Paccasassi and they are perfect for those who are looking for ready-to-eat sauces without sacrificing the quality.

The versatility of Paccasassi has allowed us to rework some traditional recipes and propose them in a renewed and functional format, meeting contemporary tastes. Our sauces are ideal for seasoning toast, bruschetta, meat, fish, cheeses, and are an excellent solution to give a refined touch to aperitifs and quick recipes.
