An extra virgin olive oil from the far North of Italy, produced with a meticulous blend of three varieties: Casaliva, Frantoio and Leccino, harvested early to increase the content of polyphenols which elevates its biological value. The resulting oil is medium fruity with herbaceous sensations reminiscent of green almond and fresh cut grass with subtle notes of green apple and herbs. Its flavor is harmonious with a slightly spicy finish, ideal for finishing grilled fish, carpaccio, raw garden vegetables and light pastas.
The Riva del Garda Agraria was founded by royal decree in 1926 with the general purpose of promoting and supporting agriculture in the Garda Trentino area in Northern Italy. The local territory comprises the upper Lake Garda area, which is actually the most southern part of the Alpine region of Trentino-Alto Adige, and is a paradise which has remained largely undisturbed from outside influences. The upper Lake Garda area lies just below the 46th parallel and is an area with a mild climate protected by the Dolomite Mountains to the north and the warming effects of Lake Garda to the south. The lower Sarca Valley is one large garden, and those who cultivate it remain entranced by this fertile land with its abundant vineyards and lush olive groves in a peaceful, verdant and uncontaminated setting. It is easy to see why the Riva del Garda Agraria can rightfully boast of the high quality of the local products, which come from the earth, care and ancient traditions of the area.
