Badia a Coltibuono Albereto Unfiltered 100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The organic fruit for this pure, extraordinarily rich and full-flavored artisanal oil comes from the highest groves on the Badia a Coltibuono estate in Tuscany. Hand-made according to tradition, the olives are pressed every day after harvesting in order to obtain a fresh product and to prevent any alteration to the taste and bouquet. The oil has a lovely verdant hue with a distinct and vibrant, but not overpowering taste. Only a limited quantity is bottled.

  • Albereto aroma begins with a grassy perfume with notes of asparagus and aromatic herbs such as tarragon and sage. The flavor is bold with a characteristic peppery finish.

  • This early harvest oil is best appreciated simply. Drizzle on grilled thick-crusted country bread or as a final embellishment to soups, pasta and beans. Warm foods enhance the oil's lively aroma and herbaceous flavor.

  • Woods that surround the olive trees create a microclimate that makes it possible to avoid treating the plants with pesticides. Albereto's low acidity level helps prevent oxidation and is associated with healthful antioxidants.
