500ml | Olio Extra Vergine d'Oliva | 2016/2017 harvest
Imported Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Abruzzese Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Produced with 100% Intosso olives, this oil has a fruity and intense blend of artichoke and tomato leaf aromas. Rustichella d'Abruzzo recommends it for use with hearty dishes, bruschetta, soups and grilled meats.
The Vestine hills located between the foothills of the Apenines and the Adriatic sea are covered with centuries old olive orchards. The mild Adriatic breezes keep the temperatures quite warm throughout the year, allowing the olives to grow in a very healthy environment without the use of chemicals or pesticides. The olives are very healthy on a very regular basis, unlike other parts of Italy where seasonal flutuations seem to be more prevalent. The farmland owned and managed by Gianluigi Peduzzi produces a bountiful quantity of olives which are milled in a very modern community frantoio (olive mill) located at a stone's throw from the family's compound. Gianluigi works together with the farmers and the olive mill to ensure that they olives are fresh and pressed within the same day of their harvest. The oil is then decanted in stainless steel tanks for about a month and filtered before bottling.
