This rare, small batch oil is produced with olives grown and pressed by a fourth-generation farmer on a single estate in Tuscany, Italy since 1803.
True Tuscan extra virgin olive oil is a 50/50 blend of the prestigious Frantoio and Moraiolo varietals. The Frantoio olive is the only varietal native to the Tuscan region, while the Moraiolo is known for its high antioxidant content.
The olives are cold-pressed within an hour of picking on an ancient stone wheel, a method which has been used for centuries. Only two still remain in use in the region.
The result is an aromatic bright green oil with an exceptionally smooth texture and strong, peppery flavor. It is exceptionally high in polyphenols, the antioxidants that give EVOO its health benefits.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF EVOO
Oleocanthal, a phenol in EVOO, exhibits the same anti-inflammatory response in the body as NSAID ibuprofen without side effects.
The monounsaturated fats in olive oil have been shown to keep you full longer, promote weight loss, nourish the brain, and lower "bad" cholesterol.
EVOO has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, stroke, arthritis, depression, osteoporosis, and more.
