Organic 100% Moraiolo Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Pistelli -250ml
Every year, Frantoio Pistelli of Umbria harvests olives from thousands of their own Moraiolo olive trees. This type of olive is particular to Umbria and is used to make an EVOO with a signature flavor profile that no other olive oil in the world can match. This monovarietal (single variety) extra virgin olive oil has intense aromas of freshly cut grass with a bold yet buttery flavor offering notes of fresh herbs and artichokes. It works best as a dip for bread, drizzled over endive or arugula salads, or atop tomatoes. We also recommend it as finishing oil for grilled meats, fish or poultry.

Pistelli harvests their olives by hand, then presses them in their mill within a few hours. This rapid transition creates an extra virgin olive oil that embodies a particular harmony of color, aroma and taste. Furthermore, since 1997 the company has chosen to follow organic farming methods in order to conserve the soil's natural biological make up. All of Pistelli's olive oils have been certified organic for many years.

The importance of following strict processing parameters from the olive grove to the bottle guarantees that Frantoio Pistelli olive oils have the highest organoleptic quality and the best nutritional characteristics; a fine balance of bitter and spicy, fruity and herbaceous. This respected family business has been making extra virgin olive oil in Umbria, Italy for three generations. They are proud and grateful to be a producer of one of the finest foods in the world - Umbrian Olive Oil. For Frantoio Pistelli, producing the finest olive oil possible is more than just a craft; it's an artisanal profession, marrying ancient wisdom with modern technology.
