Harvested and produced using traditional granite millstones in Italy, this all natural peperoncino agrumato extra virgin olive oil is produced by crushing the olives and peppers simultaneously in the same press without the use of any added essences. This process allows for the essential oils from the peppers to harmonize with the oil from Frantoio olives. The producer hand harvests olives from Apulia, near the Adriatic coast, a region that produces more olives than anywhere else in the world.
You can definitely smell the heat in this oil! The flavor is the spiciness you want in a pepper oil; a nice zing of spice that builds and lingers. This oil is best showcased as a finishing touch on one of your signature dishes.
