Crushed not too finely, with a skillful blend of ingredients to create a fragrant, superbly creamy sauce.



Smooth, creamy, perfectly blended consistency. Emerald green color, thanks to the generous amount of basil.



Fresh, intense basil fragrance, with garlic clearly perceptible to add flavor, intensity and character to the overall aroma.



Intense, persistent, highly aromatic. The tasty purée of basil and cheese is enhanced by our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, perfectly blended with a hint of garlic that’s clearly perceptible but not overpowering and contributes to the smooth flavor.

Genoese basil P.D.O.: green gold

A Mediterranean plant with ancient origins, in Liguria basil has found the ideal environment and the perfect growing methods to become a typical product with a Protected Denomination of Origin (P.D.O.) label. Its medium-small, tender, oval, convex leaves, light green in color, have a delicate aroma and flavor, balanced as in no other variety. Used to prepare pesto and minestrone soup, Ligurian basil is a symbol of the simple, fragrant cuisine of the whole region.
