PESTO DI CUCUNCI – Virgona – 100/200 gr


The caper buds, exquisite gems of capers, are the vibrant heart of this pesto, embraced by a blend of fresh and aromatic ingredients. Extra virgin olive oil delicately envelops the caper buds, creating an oily base that enhances their flavor. Almonds, with their crunchiness, add a note of texture, while fresh basil imparts an herbal fragrance. Garlic, with its distinctive aroma, and black pepper, with its liveliness, contribute to a depth of flavor, while mint adds an unexpected touch of freshness. The result is a Caper Bud Pesto that delights the palate with its richness and complexity of flavors.

The Virgona Farm 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.
Salina 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 tourists enthusiastic about 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 showcased in the variety of its cuisine, offering different interpretations of the local gastronomic tradition.
