Ligurian Pesto is an ancient Ligurian sauce made from basil, garlic and pine nuts and "Roi" extra virgin olive oil. Pasta al pesto is a classic summertime Italian recipe. It is originally from Genova in the Liguria region of northern Italy but is nowadays widespread throughout the country.
ROI is especially known for their olive production, where the olive grove and the flavour of the olives are influenced by the surrounding Mediterranean woodland and chestnut trees, the sea and wild herbs. The olive mill is currently composed of the traditional mill with a granite millstone and two presses, as well as a newly designed mill with a continuous cycle and cold extraction.
Ingredients: Extra virgin olive oil (67%), Genovese basil PDO 28%, salt, pine nuts, garlic, wine vinegar, acidity regulators: lactic acid and citric acid.
