Altomena Olive Oil

This exquisite 100% single-estate extra-virgin olive oil comes from the historic Altomena estate in Tuscany, situated high in the hills overlooking the Arno valley. Because the area's soil and microclimate are ideal for growing olives, the estate's land has been cultivated for more than a thousand years. Grown with out pesticides, the fruit is hand picked early in the season and immediately cold-pressed to retain its deep fruity flavors and the fresh and spicy aromas. Four classic varietals are used to produce this perfectly balanced oil: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Pendolino (3%, Leccino. The golden-green oil is exceptionally fragrant with grassy notes, with a spicy taste and a pleasantly peppery finish. Use in vinaigrettes, as a dip for crusty breads, and as a finishing drizzle for grilled foods, bean dishes and crisp-tender vegetables. 25 oz. Product of Italy.

The Best Tuscan Oil You can Buy!
March 13, 2014
Altomena extra virgin olive oil is by far the best Tuscan oil available on the market. I have personally visited the Altomena estate in Tuscany and met the producer. During the harvest, he oversees each phase of production; from harvesting the olives to bottling the oil-I know of very few producers in Tuscany who are as attentive to detail as he is. In fact, if you visit the estate you will see award after award decorating the walls. Chemical analysis of his oil show high polyphenols which is evident by the very peppery taste. A bottle of this oil is worth every penny. I use this oil on everything: salads, vegetables, bread, and I put a small tsp in my son's oatmeal in the morning.
Pros: Authentic, Quality, Flavor, Healthy, Great Gift
