This oil is produced from olives grown in Tuscany and, as typical of oils from this region, it is fruity green with a rich olive flavor, light almond notes, and a peppery finish.
See below for a full description.
Grown in the sun and soil of the Central Italian region of Tuscany, Lucini Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from 100% hand-picked Italian olives pressed within 24 hours of harvest. Lucini's hillside estates are 300 to 500 meters above sea level, where the soil and climate are ideal for olive cultivation, and the scraggly trees date back over a century.
Although Lucini is a large producer, they still take care that their olives are harvested at precisely the right time, crushed immediately to capture the fruit's peak flavor, and then sent to tanks for filtration before bottling.
This guaranteed Italian-made olive oil is rich, with a deliciously floral-grassy aroma that smells like a summer’s day. Its flavor is well-balanced, full of fresh green olive, a slight almond-like taste, and momentary distinct peppery finish.
Reasonably priced to use every-day, this oil is the perfect choice with which to dress your green salads, dip bread, or finish vegetables or grilled meats.
