In the shadow of Mount Etna grow the highly prized pistachios that make up this pistachio spread from Agrimontana. The island in the southern Mediterranean is reknowned across Italy for its ultra-sweet, intensely flavorful nuts. Only the best of these best are hand-selected for this spread, chosen from small family farms on the ancient feudal estates of San Biagio, near the Platani River. They’re ground to a velvety smooth paste, ready to spread or stir anywhere you need a dose of pure pistachio goodness.
This paste is prized by pastry chefs around the world for the unbelievable pistachio flavor it adds to sweets of all kinds—and that quintessential green color, of course! Agrimontana's direct relationship with the growers ensures they get first pick of every harvest, creating a grand cru-style blend of the most aromatic, fruity, plump pistachios Italy has to offer.
Azienda Agrimontana is based in the northwestern region of Piedmont, which shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. Agrimontana’s history in Piedmont began 50 years ago, when Cesare Bardini began selling jams, candied fruit, and chestnuts in 1972. He had one mission: to share the natural riches of his home across Italy.
To this day, Agrimontana is dedicated to creating deliciously clean products using traditional methods, without added colors, preservatives, or flavorings. They focus on sustainable agriculture that preserves the beauty of their home while encouraging biodiversity.
