Orominerva Red Pesto is unique, completely different from the others. It is made from our sun-dried tomatoes and the addition of our basil pesto, L'altro pesto verde.
With the intense aromas and flavours of sun-dried tomatoes, L'altro pesto rosso is a delicious ingredient for aperitifs, starters and bruschettas, as well as for first and second course meat dishes. It also has a very slight spicy persistence at the end.
Also ideal for vegetarians.
Garlic-free. Does not contain gluten, lactose, lysozyme, nuts.
L'altro pesto rosso is the perfect combination of two Orominerva flavours: our sun-dried tomatoes and L'altro pesto verde, which is basil pesto made according to our exclusive recipe.
Orominerva red pesto delights palates with high expectations, even very different ones, thanks to its characteristic flavours and fragrances in which the freshness and naturalness of the ingredients used can be recognised. It is a delicacy that appeals to all palates.
To achieve this, we use our passion for seeking out different flavours and our experience in putting them together in the right way, resulting in a new pleasure: in the red pesto we find it in the intense flavours of the sun-dried tomatoes which, at the end, reveal a subtle and pleasant spicy note.
Everything is perfectly balanced thanks to a skilful use of the raw materials, which are few and good and also ideal for vegetarians.
Orominerva's other red pesto contains neither garlic nor food of animal origin. It is a sun-dried tomato pesto for which we use a little of our green pesto made with Orominerva Genoese basil PDO, Orominerva's EVO oil and a long ripening cheese with vegetable rennet.
Dried tomatoes give it the typical imprint of the taste of tradition through an excellent organoleptic profile that comes from a high-quality raw material, processed with a few steps dictated by the uses of the past. We dry the fresh tomatoes in the sun and wait for nature to make them perfect in its own time.
The wait is worth it: our pesto with sun-dried tomatoes is extremely tasty, a condiment that satisfies the desire to bring authentic flavours to the table in a completely new way.
With our red pesto, you can give a distinctive character to every moment of a meal, starting with the less demanding ones. It is delicious on canapés or bruschetta, served as an aperitif or hors d'oeuvres.
Versatile and practical, L'altro pesto rosso is an excellent alternative for preparing a variation on the classic pasta with pesto; the flavour of the sun-dried tomatoes will add a distinctive and very Mediterranean touch.
And finally, the main courses: red pesto is a perfect condiment for white and red meats.
