Frantoio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Intense, peppery, and green, Frantoio olive oil will surprise you with its bold intensity. You may even cough a time or two as the [super high] polyphenols make their way to the back of your throat. Our Frantoio olive oil contains notes of grass, herbs, and pepper, with a moderate amount of bitterness on the finish. In short, it's intense and DELICIOUS.

Frantoio and Leccino olives are the olive varieties used in Italian olive oils from Tuscany. Leccino has a mild sweet flavour, while Frantoio is fruity with a stronger aftertaste. Due to their highly valued flavor, these cultivars are now grown in other countries.

Use our robust Frantoio olive oil for vinaigrettes [especially with Fig Balsamic Vinegar]. This olive oil complements the tastes of tomato, mild nutty cheeses, salad, bread, pasta, vegetables and seafood.

Olive Oil, comes from olives, which are the fruit of the hardy, long-lived olive tree. Olive oil is a hugely popular oil throughout the world, both for cooking and for eating as a condiment [like a salad dressing, or a bread dip, or in a sauce] with foods. Extra virgin olive oil is considered by most people to be the highest-quality olive oil, with the finest taste and texture.

Choosing an olive oil can be similar to selecting a wine. The flavor of these oils vary considerably and a particular oil may be more suited for a particular dish, depending on whether you are pan-frying, sauteing, stir-frying, grilling or baking... or whether you are using the oil for marinades, dips, and dressings. If uncompromised by heat, the flavor of the olive oil is stronger.
