Organic EVOO DOP Umbria Colli Assisi Spoleto in Glass by Pistelli
This hard-to-find extra virgin olive oil has two notable certifications: Organic and DOP Colli Assisi Spoleto. This DOP designation indicates that the olives must be grown in specific district and the blend of olives must predominantly be of the Moraiolo variety, with local Frantoio and Leccino olives making up the balance. Frantoio Pistelli harvests their olives by hand from October 25th to November 15th, then presses them in their mill within a few hours. This rapid transition helps create an extra virgin olive oil that embodies harmony of color, aroma and taste.

Its aroma is fruity, rich and herbaceous, dominated by yellow apple. Its flavor is balanced with herbaceous notes of almond. This premium oil has medium intensity bitter and spicy qualities, balanced in perfect harmony. We recommend it used as a condiment drizzled over soups, legumes, vegetables, meat and fish. It is excellent mixed into bruschetta and dips and wonderful over salads as well.

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.
