Vineyard Notes: The Isole e Olena Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a blend of Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino varieties. Grown on the Isole e Olena estate, the olives are picked by hand from 25-100 year old trees in November. Each olive tree yields between 1-5 kilos of oil.
Production Notes: To ensure the olives retain their natural flavor profile, they are immediately sent to the mill for cold pressing and extraction. The oil is stored in small stainless-steel tanks in the cellars and is bottled in small lots. It is filtered to retain the maximum flavor, which is best appreciated when used raw on salads and soups. The average acidity is 0.25%.
