Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Il Borro Tuscany

Olive Oil.jpg

Intensely green in color, dense and crystalline, it has a deeply aromatic bouquet, full of floral and fruit scents and notes of cut grass. The aromatic bouquet is confirmed on tasting, with the addition of salvia and basil aromatic notes, The aftertaste has slight peppery hints and more particularly, a delicate bitter flavor which gives vigor to the structure of the oil.

Olive trees grow on the hills above Valdarno, in a soil suitable for the cultivation. The harvest is done manually to best preserve each fruit (Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, Pendolino, Fiorentino).

The cold pressing ensures a high-quality olive oil.
