Dark green in color, Cascina Bonfiglio pistachio pesto reveals all the strength of Sicilian green gold in its flavor, presenting a strong, rounded taste on the palate, in which the bitter notes of the green fruit stand out when covered by its brown skin.
A flavour that makes this pesto with a rustic consistency perfect to be enjoyed with cold cuts or a slice of lard, spread on a slice of warm bread.
To make our pesto, we only use pistachio grown in the Bronte PDO area, which includes a fairly limited area in the Etna territories of Bronte, Adrano and Biancavilla. Called "the green gold of Sicily", this fruit is much more prized than its American and Middle Eastern counterparts, due to its much more delicate and intense flavor.
To produce 100g of Pistachio Pesto, Cascina Bonfiglio uses 60% pistachios, a very high percentage that brings out the flavor of the precious green fruit over the other ingredients, whose task is to enhance the flavor of a unique product, not to hide it.
If consumed in moderation, pistachio can be an important source of fiber and mineral salts, especially iron, zinc and potassium.
Furthermore, it is rich in antioxidants that prevent cellular aging and in monounsaturated fats, which help lower the levels of "bad" cholesterol in the blood.
