Extra Virgin 3.38 fl oz (100ml)

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: Koroneiki

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

Intensity: Medium

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): 406mg

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: 0.29%

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

A favorite among the world’s most discerning chefs, this extra virgin olive oil from Western Crete is produced from estate-grown Koroneiki olives crushed within hours of being picked from the tree. Named “Outstanding Olive Oil” by the Specialty Food Association, this exceptional oil is characterized by a unique bouquet and taste that are truly unparalleled.

The Aria brand was founded by Emmanuel Daskalakis, who began with the dream of importing oil produced from his family's olive groves in Crete. This very special extra virgin olive oil benefits from the sun-rich soil and sea-salt air on the island of Crete. Here the olives are nurtured to perfection and upon reaching their optimal ripeness, they are harvested and with uncompromising integrity, transformed into an oil of exceptionally high quality. Aria is beloved for its distinctive smooth flavor, aroma and low acidity.
