Aided by sun, soil and the Italian climate, Lucini extra virgin olive oil is produced from 100% hand-picked Italian olives pressed within 24 hours. These olives are harvested to produce a traditional Tuscan tasting profile that is green and full, with a peppery finish. It has an acidity level less than half of regular extra virgin. The hillside estates are 300 to 500 meters above sea level, where the soil and microclimate are ideal for cultivation, and the trees date back over 100 years. Lucini Italia olives are harvested at precisely the right time, then crushed immediately to capture the fruit's peak flavor. This oil is certified Kosher Parve.
