PESTO DI CAPPERI DI SALINA – Virgona – 100/200 gr


Caper Pesto is a culinary creation made from carefully selected ingredients. Capers, with their salty character, are the vibrant heart of this pesto. Extra virgin olive oil, with its fragrance, envelops the capers, creating a harmonious oily base. Almonds offer their crunchy texture, while parsley and fresh garlic add an herbaceous and aromatic touch. A pinch of black pepper adds liveliness, while mint, with its unique freshness, imparts a distinctive flavor to the pesto. The result is a combination of flavors that makes Caper Pesto a product of Italian excellence.

The Virgona Agricultural Company is born as a completion of a long enological tradition, contributing to the enhancement of Salina’s wine production, given the economic, social, historical, and cultural importance that this sector has always had on the island.
The Aeolian Islands archipelago has the shape of a “Y,” and right in the center lies Salina, the ancient “Dydime,” the twin island formed by two ancient extinct volcanoes: Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri, now protected by a Nature Reserve. Within the 27 square kilometers of this lush volcanic land, there is a concentration of environmental and landscape resources that constitute a heritage to be tenaciously safeguarded.
Internally, it is divided into three small municipalities: Malfa on the northern slope, Santa Marina on the eastern coast, and Leni in the southern hinterland. Every year, it is a sought-after destination for thousands of enthusiastic tourists who are captivated by the beauty that the island offers, with its crystal-clear and uncontaminated waters, considered a true paradise for divers; beaches, coves, and inlets for yachtsmen, cliffs sculpted by the sea, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets with kaleidoscopic colors.
Salina is the island that, more than others, has been able to preserve its rural soul and maintain the typicality, genuineness, and authenticity of its traditional economy, based on caper cultivation and the production of the famous Malvasia wine.
The island’s vibrant colors and intense aromas are also captured and presented in the variety of its cuisine, offering different interpretations of the local gastronomic tradition.
