Olio Extravergine di Oliva Biologico 250 ml - Olio di Sting Il Palagio
This organic olive oil comes from the vast Il Palagio estate of Sting and Trudie Styler. In this domain there are centuries-old olive trees from which a fantastic olive oil is also certified organic. The oil is a blend of various types of Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino, Coratina and Leccio del Corno olives. Olive oil has a very fine texture and a soft aftertaste. The oil has an acidity of only 0.02% instead of the usual 0.5-0.99%. Aromas of almonds, apple, banana, spices and shades of marzipan. Delicious with salads, bruschetta or Italian bread.
The olive trees that adorn the landscape of the Palagio date back many hundreds of years and have been sensibly restored to full productivity. Thanks above all to the care and dedication of the Summer Manager Paolo Rossi, who insists that the orchards are not irrigated, a system that requires a lot of manpower but which greatly improves their quality. Paolo places his trees right on the edge of the optimal growing area at 360 feet above sea level. This is the best situation to escape the natural olive fly parasite. Finally, the fruits are harvested by hand, as has been done for centuries, making sure that only the best are selected. The oil is then cold pressed and the resulting extra virgin first pressing oil is as pure and delicious as you can imagine.
