Extra Virgin Olive Oil

from 18.95

Our extra virgin olive oil is organic and made exclusively from olives from the Villa Lena estate. The flavour is peppery and bright, as well as a smooth and spicy which is achieved by blending a variety of olives (Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo). The olives are harvested each autumn by hand, using ancient methods. Within 12 hours of harvesting the the olives are cold-pressed at a local mill, to ensure we create the freshest possible product and a longer shelf life. Our olive oil has particularly low content of peroxides (1,61 mEO/Kg against a benchmark of 7) and acidity (0.23 ol.% against a benchmark of ≤ 0.8%). These numbers indicate a low level of oxidization which has been achieved by giving special attention to the health and quality of our olives and to the extraction process and storage conditions.
