This unique oil is prepared by simultaneously crushing fresh organic lemons with early harvest olives. It is golden yellow in color with emerald green undertones and has a slightly fruity, balanced taste accented with the flavor of fresh lemon peels. It is delicious as a marinade for seafood or drizzled on cured meats such as bresaola. It complements beautifully boiled or steamed vegetables and will impart a lovely freshness to pasta sauces.

For over 200 years, Principessa Marina Colonna's family has been producing oils on their estate in Martino, in southeastern Italy's unspoiled Molise region on the Adriatic coast. A family property, Colonna is well known for its extra virgin olive oils as well as special blends that are pressed with fragrant organic lemons, oranges, bergamots and tangerines. The family's 140 acres of groves cultivate 22 varieties of olives. Manually harvested when slightly under ripe, Colonna olives are processed and then milled on the same day. Each olive variety is harvested, processed, milled and cold pressed separately to ensure quality.
