  • Organic Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Certified organic olive oils use organically grown olives and meet organic production standards for their region. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Frantoio, Casaliva, Leccino

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Intensity: Medium Robust

    Intensity correlates to the amount of bitterness and/or pungency experienced when consuming an extra virgin olive oil. An olive oil with little bitterness that creates little to no sensation in the back of the throat is considered mild. A very bitter olive oil that causes a slight burning or spicy sensation in the mouth and throat is robust. We rate intensity between 5 values: Mild, Medium, Medium Robust, Robust and Extreme.

  • Polyphenols (mg/kg): 553mg

    Polyphenols are antioxidant micronutrients found in plant-based foods. The phenolic concentration in olive oil depends on variables like the variety, ripeness at harvest, extraction methods, etc. Visit our Health Benefits page to learn more.

  • Acidity: .017%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2021

    As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.

Description

This organic entry in the 46° Parallelo line of extra virgin olive oil from Agraria Riva del Garda is cultivated in the well-ventilated basin along the Trentino shores of Lake Garda in Italy, historically important for its many olive groves. The olives used in this oil are harvested early and are strictly handpicked, and the actual pressing, storage and bottling are conducted separately in accordance to organic production protocol. This Extra Virgin Olive Oil features a high content of oleic acid, an essential fatty acid precious to maintaining good health, and given the added benefits of organic production, this oil is particularly recommend for young children, those with special nutritional needs, people with food intolerances and allergies and those who have chosen an organic lifestyle with respect for nature and the environment.

The Producer
MADE FOR YOU BY

Agraria Riva del Garda

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.
