A number of things set this oil apart from others. First, it is made with only taggiasca olives, which produce a sweet, buttery and delicate oil that is uniquely suited for finishing fine dishes--from fish to carpaccio. Second, this oil is still cold pressed the old fashioned way; it is not extruded like many other extra virgin olive oils on the market. The result of this process is less oxidation to the oil, giving it a a fresher flavor. Finally, the olives for this unique oil are still picked from this generations' old family orchard. The result is an oil of absolute peerless quality.
