From Lucia Iannotta, recently featured in the 60 Minutes special "How to Buy Olive Oil", this exceptional extra virgin olive oil is made exclusively from locally grown Itrana olives in the DOP area of Colline Pontine in Lazio, Italy. Its fruitiness is of medium intensity and has fragrant aromas of freshly cut grass and tomato leaf with flavors of fresh herbs and green almonds. It is an exceptional oil - balanced, complex, and elegant and is ideal for drizzling over fresh garden vegetables, leafy green salads, soups, pastas and meats or enjoyed simply with a slice of fresh baked bread.
Featured in the recent 60 Minutes special on how to buy olive oil, Lucia Iannotta grew up among the olive groves; the daughter and granddaughter of olive farmers and olive press workers. After graduating from university, she decided to take the reins of the family business and create something entirely new , a company that was modern but at the same time respectful of tradition; a business devoted to quality where the difference was in the details. From this dream was born the reality that bears her name. Since 2008 , piece by piece, day after day , the business has grown, winning accolades and devotees. The whole enterprise is under stringent control: the propertys olive groves, the olive press, the bottling line. The entire process is monitored constantly so as not to leave anything to chance; to produce the best Itrana cultivars and to ensure that what ends up inside the bottle captures the region's true flavors. The research work does't stop there: the team is part farmer, part artisan, and part archaeologist, always full of enthusiasm to inspire emotions through fragrances and flavors.
