Why we love it

Ascolana tenera is a single variety extra virgin olive oil made with the Ascolana tenera, the same olive that is used to produce the famous Olive all'Ascolana, a delicious appetizer. The Ascolana Tenera cultivar, grown in the Marche region, is caractherised by a big size and a very limited yield.

The Ascolana Tenera extra virgin olive oil has an intense golden yellow color with delicate green nuances. On the nose is intense, with hints of mint and basil. Complex and elegant in the mouth, with notes of medium-ripe tomato, apple and unripe banana, enriched by tones of lettuce and celery. Bitterness and spiciness are in perfect harmony.

The Ascolana tenera olive oil is excellent on steamed beans, tomato salads, jacket potatoes, shellfish-based risottos, first courses with white fish sauce, fish crudités, also perfect on boiled white or red meats and raw seasonal vegetables. Delicious with buffalo mozzarella.

The artisan who made it

The history of Frantoio Agostini is a story of passion, tradition and excellence. A journey that began 70 years ago: an activity handed down from father to son, today at third generation. Frantoio Agostini is located in the heart of the Aso valley, between the Sibillini mountains and the Adriatic sea, where the air is fresh and clean, and the climate is ideal for the cultivation of olive trees - the Aso valley is known for growing olive trees since the Romans.

And between the green of the hills and the blue of the sea, Frantoio Agostini started in 1945, soon after the war, with Alfredo. Nowadays, they have become one of the most awarded Italian oil producer. Growing native olive varieties, including the Ascolana, their extra virgin olive oils are some of the best the Marche region offers, with the olive harvest manually done and the milling taking place within 6 – 12 hours at the latest after harvesting, thus ensuring, an exceptional extra virgin olive oil with a plenty of antioxidants, such as polyphenols, vitamins and carotene, precious allies for a healthy life.
