Produced by Viola

A blend of organic oils produced from age-old olive trees growing on the Viola estate.

  • 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: Moraiolo, Frantoio

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

  • 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

From award-winning producer Viola comes this blend of extra virgin oils made from organic Frantoio and Moraiolo olives grown on the stony hills above Sant'Eraclio di Foligno in Umbria. The olives were produced by some of the oldest trees on the lands farmed by Marco Viola, resulting in an oil with an elegant aroma featuring scents of artichoke and wild herbs. On the palate the oil tastes rich and herbaceous, with hints of thistle adding to the fresh artichoke and herb flavors. Pair with mature cheese, raw vegetables, or bean salad as a starter. Use it to finish squash soup, freshwater fish or mushroom dishes. Also makes an excellent ingredient for baking cookies and fruit pies.
