Why we love it
An organic extra virgin olive oil made from Marche’s native olive variety with an intense golden yellow colour with delicate green hues and an intense nose rich in notes of aromatic herbs accompanied by hints of freshly cut grass and almonds.
On the palate it is complex and vegetal, with tones of artichoke, chicory and lettuce. Strong and balanced bitterness and spiciness.
Excellent on grilled porcini mushrooms, tuna salads, first courses with sausage, grilled poultry, fresh cheeses.
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.
