Dolce Agogia Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Terre di Grifonetto - 3L
More is better when it comes to Terre di Grifonetto's Dolce Agogia EVOO. This convenient 3 liter tube/container is similar to the wine-in-a-box concept - never seeing sunlight and never getting oxygen, it remains as fresh as its day of creation. Pop the perforated opening and pull the spout out from the bag through the opening. You can use it straight from the spout or pour some easily from the spout into a small bottle for convenience and to maintain freshness. A smart way to keep stock of a great olive oil. An impressive gift for your favorite olive oil connoisseur or chef.

EVOO This quintessential Umbrian EVOO is harvested from an ancient single olive variety called ‘Dolce Agogia’ (meaning ‘sweet drop’). Dolce Agogia olives are grown on the beautiful Lake Trasimeno hillsides in the territory of Perugia and have the fortitude to withstand winter frosts and dry summer heat. They are carefully harvested at their peak from October until the first week of November. After a continuous cold extraction cycle, this Monocultivar oil reveals why it is one of the most appreciated tastes of the region. Extraordinarily smooth and gentle, it is sober and soft in the mouth with medium to light fruitiness, highlighted by refined, slightly bitter notes that lengthen into a spicy finish with soft almond tones.

Established in 2011 and currently represented by Angelica Pistelli and her mother, Francesca R. Cassano, Terre di Grifonetto is a brand name inspired by Grifonetto Baglioni (a charming, historical, Renaissance protagonist of Perugia), to tie the rich, regional history and centuries old family business to the company's modern identity. Angelica and Francesca’s family has owned and worked this land since the second half of the 16th century and have an absolute dedication to preserve and protect the authentic organoleptic characteristics and healthy properties of Terre di Grifonetto extra virgin olive oil.
