Pesto is a sauce famous the world over. Originating from Genoa, Italy, its name comes from the past participle of “pestâ,” which means “to pound” or “to crush” in Genoese.
It’s traditionally prepared using a mortar and pestle, and customarily consists of crushed garlic, European pine nuts, coarse salt, basil leaves, hard cheese (like Parmigiano-Reggiano, or Pecorino), and blended with olive oil.
Casa Rinaldi as a company was birthed from a passion for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, for which Modena is known. Its name is taken from the 1888 building owned by the Rinaldi family, which served as a vinegar factory. The building stands to this day, and is both an active component, being used in the company’s production, and a metaphorical marker—a reminder of tradition and quality.
