Just as with fine wine, environment plays a role in the taste of olive oil, a staple for the Mediterranean diet. Whether produced in coastal Liguria or the Tuscan hills, olive oils can be found with drastically different flavors and aromas which depend on the olivesí varietal and the climate in which they are cultivated and harvested. Sweet, grassy, buttery, herbaceous, and peppery, high-quality olive oils offer a complex mixture of flavors, aromas, and textures. Our olive oils stand out because they come from one Tenuta, or estate. Hand-selected for their quality and picked straight from the tree, the olives are first cold pressed and shipped to us as soon as they are bottled. We sell you only oil from this seasonís harvest so you can taste the complex flavors at their freshest and most fragrant. Well-known as a key element in the healthy Mediterranean diet, olive oil is high in polyphenols, which give it its unique flavor profile and cancer fighting antioxidants.
