Extra Virgin Olive Oil 100% Italian – 1 litre – £23.50
Produced by Maccioni’s family in Tuscany (Italy)
This is a Maccioni Family produced olive oil, from the hills of Montealbano in Tuscany 2 kilometres north of Vinci Leonardo’s birth place.
All our extra virgin olive oil is from our own olive grove where we grow our mix of moraiolo olives and leccino olives. The Olives begin green and ripen to a rich purpley black. We pick when there is still mix of green olives and black olives on the trees as this gives our oil a beautiful golden-green colour and a piquant taste which is especially strong when it is first pressed.
The fruit is hand picked, taken to the olive mill then cold pressed and the oil unfiltered. We guarantee that all our oil is from the current season’s crop.
The 1 litre bottle is in the traditional tuscan square shape. It is in a dark green glass to preserve the olive oil, which is also to be kept away from strong sunlight, to maintain the high level of fragrance and taste.
