Exquisite extra virgin olive oil made from 100% Coreggiolo variety olives of Tuscany.

  • 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: Coreggiolo

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

  • Polyphenols (mg/kg): 533mg

    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: 0.16%

    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 2020

    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

Produced from 100% Correggiolo variety olives hand-picked in October in the hills of Montenero d’Orcia. This oil is deep green in color with a fresh, intensely grassy aroma, predominant of artichoke, cardoon and green almond, enhanced by floral and cherry hints which create an extremely complex bouquet. Its flavor is round and strong with decisive spicy and bitter undertones. Use to contrast the sweet flavor of potatoes, beans, chickpeas and vegetables in general; on red meat or strong-flavored fish; with fresh cheese, such as ravaggiolo and mozzarella; and is excellent on spinach and ricotta tortelli, or with plain rice and pasta with thin slivers of parmesan.
