  • Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    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: Grignano, Favarol

    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): 256mg

    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: 0.22%

    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.

Frantoio Bonamini

Located in the countryside northeast of Verona in the province of Veneto, a region well-known for quality wines (such as Amorone della Valpolicella), Bonamini grows their olive trees across terraces and high hills not suited to grape cultivation. This family-run business is managed by Giancarlo & Sabrina Bonamini, whose trees include native varieties Grignano and Favarol, in addition to the more common Italian varieties Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo.

The weather of Northern Italy exposes the trees to cold winters, which results in olive fruit with unique sensory characteristics. All the olives are hand harvested due to the challenging terrain, and then crushed cold the same day of harvest to create elegant and aromatic extra virgin olive oils.
