100% Italian Organic Basil Olive Oil from Puglia
Local, tender basil leaves are co-pressed in our family stone mill along with our organic Coratina olives, producing this very popular herbaceous favorite. Drizzle over Caprese salad, use in your pesto, cook chicken and pasta, and enjoy a splash over your favorite fruit sorbet.
Choosing only the finest ingredients, our flavors of olive oils are produced with the same attention to excellence as any of our products. This selection of olive oils is made without artificial flavors, rather through the simple process of crushing our organically grown Coratina olives together and then “co-pressing” them with the corresponding herb or fruit, in this case fresh Italian basil.
Each of these ingredients produce natural oils, which are derived by means of first, stone-milling and cold-pressing each small batch. The organoleptic properties of the extra virgin olive oil and herb or fruit oils are preserved, acting both as a stabilizer and an aromatic perfume extractor encouraging the aromatic essential oils to reach their fullest fragrance. Enjoy with any culinary use including grilling, sautéing, marinading, and drizzling.
