Marcelli Formaggi

Importers of Artisan Farmstead Cheese and Specialty Products from Abruzzo, Italy

Welcome to the online home of Marcelli Formaggi.

We are pleased to offer you the products and flavors of our family in Abruzzo!

From the pure high mountain pastures of the Gran Sasso comes the finest organic artisanal farmstead cheese, made from the rare Sopravissana breed. Winner of many Slow Food Italy awards, it's made by hand on a small sustainable farm using century old traditional methods. Extra virgin olive oil from orchards planted by Benedictine monks. World famous saffron from the Navelli Plain of L'Aquila. Savory mountain honey, intense and full flavored, from pristine fields. We bring you the foods of Abruzzo, the tastes and smells of place, the terroir.


The terroir of Abruzzo is the link from the past to the present.

From the rugged Majella Mountains, the Gran Sasso, Abruzzo national parks and ancient medieval villages, we bring you these products, made with centuries of tradition.
