Pesto Genovese from Rossi 1947 is world famous, and for good reason. Using only the finest, most carefully selected local ingredients, and crafted in the centuries old tradition of blending and preserving fresh pesto Genovese, Roberto Panizza’s pesto is a labor of love and science.
Roberto starts with the right basil, always young basil leaves from traditionally cultivated Ligurian basil. This Basilico Genovese DOP has obtained the “Certification of Protected Origin,” after a rigorous review of both its agricultural history and chemical testing for quality. It has been certified as one of the best basils in the world. This beautiful, fresh and vibrant herb is highlighted with Vessalico Garlic, local to Liguria, hand selected pine nuts, Pecorino Fiore Sardo DOP, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, Taggiasco Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Trapani Salt from Sicily.
Best served over pasta (we recommend our Pasta di Liguria,) fish, or salads, or drizzled over freshly sliced tomatoes and warm crunchy bread, this traditional pesto from the Ligurian region is sure to become a staple in your home.
This pesto is shelf stable and will keep unrefrigerated for up to 12 months, although we're sure you'll have used it up before then!
