Alessandro & Stefano Pesto Classico

Thanks to the special basil better than fresh home-made Pesto!


Genovese Pesto is the second most famous pasta sauce in the world (after tomato sauce!). As it is a very simple sauce its quality depends solely on the excellence of its ingredients. Alessandro & Stefano’s Pesto is a truly unique product due to the special Genovese basil that is grown since 1827 on their farm, the artisanal working processes and the use of highly selected other ingredients. The Pesto is bright green with a creamy consistency. The flavour is primarily of basil, combined with the delicacy of extra-virgin olive oil and pine nuts. A combination of three cheeses, Grana Padano, Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Romano, adds deepness and complexity.

Shelf Life

Alessandro & Stefano's Pesto will keep for five weeks unopened in the fridge. Once opened keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days.

How to use

Never cook your Pesto; you will lose both its taste and its creamy texture. For warm preparations it should be added last and allowed to gently come to temperature. To make a pasta sauce dilute your pesto with some of the pasta cooking water

A Perfect microclimate and love are the secrets to this incredible pesto

“Our history comes from a long experience in the agricultural sector and it begins in 1827 in our greenhouses in front of the sea called ‘Serre sul Mare’ “, Alessandro explains. “Thanks to the famous terraces, we were able to create strips of territory in a landscape which is not so conducive to agriculture”.
