Why does it deserve our mention? Because it is considered one of the best sauces in the world and because the Rossi family has been producing it artisanally with the best ingredients since 1947. Roberto Panizza selects his ingredients looking for the best balance for his pesto: fresh basil with PDO Genovese, Italian pine nuts, Italian extra virgin olive oil, 24-month cured parmesan cheese with PDO, Fiore Sardo 12-month cured pecorino cheese with PDO, Sicilian Trapani salt and slow food certified garlic from Vessalico de la Liguria, slightly spicy but highly digestive.
