Imported Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Abruzzese Agrumato Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In Abruzzo, on the Adriatic Sea, at the end of each harvest, farmers create a special oil for their family and friends. In their "frantoio" (olive mill) on the farm, the farmers crush and press small amounts of hand-harvested olives with fresh citrus fruit to create oils such as Agrumato. Agrume means "citrus". The crisp freshness of Agrumato is achieved by the whole-fruit crushing process, which cannot be duplicated by the more common infusion method of other citrus flavored oils. By crushing the olives with the citrus, the purity of each fruit flavor is maintained. The resulting oil is an exquisitely versatile condiment.
Agrumato Lemon (pale yellow label) | Immediately bright and crisp on the palate. Marries magically with a wide variety of raw and cooked foods. Toss with pasta and fresh ricotta, drizzle over grilled fish, roasted vegetables or fresh greens. (Fancy Food Show Winner, 1994)
