Vallemaggia pepper

Pepe della Vallemaggia, although pepper does not grow in the valley, was so called by its creator, Virgilio Matasci, who, together with his son Elis, enriches the spice in his small family workshop in Bignasco, in Vallemaggia. Pepper, thanks to the addition of local spices, deliberately kept secret, from strictly Ticino white wine, grappa and whiskey, has a spicy flavour, a fresh and soft consistency.
