Extracted by the unique “Sinolea Rapanelli Drip Method” in which oil is obtained without any production stress and the drops of oil are collected from the perforated fruit, this DOP (Denomination of Protected Origin) certified, “Strong Fruity” single-estate extra virgin olive oil is specially selected by Carol Gradassi. Emerald green and gold in color, this oil is pleasantly spicy with a slightly bitter aftertaste with an intense fruity aroma and taste of freshly pressed, not fully ripe olives. This oil is particularly suited to dress roasted red meats, bruschetta and legume soups.
For many years the Gradassi family has been meticulously cultivating olives on the rocky terrains surrounding the medieval hilltop town of Campello sul Clitunno in the central Italian region of Umbria, known for its abundance in rich vegetation as the ÛÏGreen Heart of ItalyÛ. Following a centuriesÛª old family tradition, the olives are carefully handpicked and then brought to the olive mill on their Estate, which dates back to 1639. The Gradassi family produces some of the most spectacular extra virgin olive oils in Umbria. Warmth, simplicity, authenticity and an incredible passion for the good things in life is their philosophy.
