CATEGORY: Imported Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extracted from 60% Frantoio, 30% Leccino, and 10% Pendolino olives, Sole Sabino’s extra virgin olive oil is a medium intensity oil with brilliant golden color. The aromas are soft and sweet with flavors of ripe black olives and banana, with an herbal undertone.
Anna Maria Billi and her daughters are keeping regional traditions alive with award-winning olive oils made from the fruit of their own orchard in the hills of Sabina, north of Rome. It is here that cool Apennine mountain breezes ensure even ripening of Anna Maria’s olives, and when the fruit is blushing between green and purple, it is harvested entirely by hand. Crushed at a nearby frantoio (olive mill) the olives are transformed into an unfiltered oil that is truly reflective of this area. The area of Sabina today carries Denominazione di Origine Protetta (D.O.P.) status, ensuring that regional olive oils meet strict standards of quality and excellence.
The Billi family enjoys cooking with their oil daily at home. Francesca, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, loves to serve it simply: with summer salads, pasta sauces, marinades and grilled meats.
