From the Alta Murgia hills in the borderland between Puglia and Basilicata in Southern Italy com Drops of Gold - Goccio d'Oro. Cold-pressed from Coratina and Bambina olives on the day of harvest, Goccio d'Oro is Antonio Raguso's tribute to his great-grandmother, Vincenza, who founded Frantoio Oleario Raguso in 1904. More than a century later, Antonio employs the latest innovations in olive oil production to preserve the exceptional anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant polyphenolic properties of the legendary olives of Puglia. At the same time, Antonio has produced an extra virgin oil of outstanding organoleptic quality, worthy of the time-honored tradition of his ancestors.
Goccio d'Oro is now available for the first time in the United States! This unfiltered extra virgin olive oil is perfectly balanced between fruity and buttery, with some pungency on the peppery finish. Only harvested in November, this oil has a maximum acidity at harvest of 0.2%.
