ROI Basil Pesto (90g)

This richly coloured, thick and luxurious Ligurian pesto is an ancient sauce made from basil, garlic and pine nuts along with the family's own extra virgin olive oil. It makes an excellent accompaniment to soup and as a sauce for pasta dishes, or drizzled over salad or steak.

The Boeri family have produced olives for four generations since the year 1900. The groves sit in the beautiful Valley Argentina, in the mountains behind Sanremo in Liguria, where only olives of the Taggiasca variety are cultivated. Surrounded by Meditteranean woodland and chestnut trees, the cultivation process of the olives dates back to Roman times and their exquisite taste is influenced by the sea and wild herbs of the local area.The family's groves have been a member of the biological registry since 2002 due to their care and consideration of the environment during the cultivation process. The flavour of the olive oil is essential to creating the perfect balance and unique taste of this pesto sauce.
