Bona Furtuna’s line, made in the town of Corleone, includes antipasti and marinara sauces.
By Florence Fabricant
Though the name Corleone may be best known from “The Godfather,” Corleone is also a town near Palermo, Sicily, that is the source of some ancient grains used to make pasta, heirloom tomatoes for sauce and thousand-year-old olive trees for oil for a company based there, Bona Furtuna. Its pastas are particularly flavorful without being heavy. The marinara sauces include one that’s seductively fragrant with oregano flowers. There are also jarred chiles stuffed with tuna and olives for antipasto. Some of the profits go to charities in Sicily and the United States. Through April 15, they are donating 20 percent of online sales to No Kid Hungry and Banco Alimentare.
Bona Furtuna marinara sauces, 25.4 ounces, $14.95; dry pasta $10.95 to $11.95 for 17.6 ounces; stuffed chiles with tuna, $24.95 for 7.16 ounces, bonafurtuna.com.
