One of the most refined limited edition productions, directly from the western region of Liguria, is Assolo, a unique extra virgin olive oil, famous since the time of Tzars in Russia, who used to love it on many different kinds of preparations.
This oil comes from the pressing of very ripe olives, during the last part of the harvest time in late April or May when the olives on the upper terraces of Liguria fully ripen. Characterized by an opalescent aspect, with a sweet and mild flavor and smooth finish.
This very rare and elegant extra virgin olive oil is perfect on fish and for those delicate dishes where the dressing can highlight the dish, without covering the main flavor.
Galateo & Friends is a young Brand created in 2002 in Liguria, in the town of Arma di Taggia. The Company, characterized by a strong olive-oil vocation, produces extra virgin olive oil made from Ligurian olives of the quality "taggiasca", balsamic and wine vinegar, dressings and a selection of Italian products. The food concept proposed by Galateo & Friends is expressed by the motto "The Good captured within The Beautiful", a formula offering the best of the Italian food excellence and good living, national characteristics which have given Italy the capacity of standing out amongst the rest of the world and teaching other countries about the Italian lifestyle.
Created by Marco Bonaldo, previously a founder of the brand Terre Bormane and always careful about the line's quality, this original project matches a high-quality food design line and an original, exclusive collection of tableware imagined by the famous creator and global designer Jacqueline Morabito. The bottles have expressly been realized on the original drawings, made exclusively for Galateo & Friends, and are reminiscent of the old aluminum cans, yet re-proposed and updated by their contemporary cut. A real life style which, as the Company's brand itself evokes, dusts off the old Galateo into a modern key and gives space to the collaborations with a number of "friends" that succeed one another in time with their original creations.
Designers, fashion designers, internationally renowned chefs, bloggers, architects, Hotels in the world have played a strong role into making the Brand stronger by means of their creativity and mastery, letting our products become even more precious and original, under the sign of "good taste": a fil rouge representing the Company's constant factor.
