Terre di Grifonetto 100% Umbrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 3L
More is better when it comes to Terre di Grifonetto's 100% Umbrian 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.

This Terre di Grifonetto EVOO blend is derived from three Umbrian olive varieties: Leccino, Frantoio and Moraiolo. Harvested in October, the oil is derived from continuous cold cycle extraction. When blended, these typical cultivars from the "green heart" of Italy form a wide, embracing taste, intensely interlaced with fruity herbaceous and sharply bitter notes that grow into a spicy finish. Its rich vegetal scent is of thistle and artichoke. This style of 100% Italian made EVOO is used in every traditional Umbrian dish and dazzles the most demanding consumers and discerning palates on the continued search for excellence.

Pairs well with garlic breads, tomato salads, boiled vegetables, legume soups, anchovies, sardines, and mackerel, roast and grilled red meats, fresh stringy cheeses….

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.
