Why we love it
This Italian extra virgin olive oil, produced by Ciavolich, is absolutely outstanding, made in Abruzzo, in a very modern olive mill, where the olives are crushed immediately after harvesting and once in the mill, they are kept protected from oxygenation as to preserve the quality of the oil. This extra virgin olive oil is perfect with a simple fish dish or on its own on a slice of bread. Our description simply cannot do it justice, the only way to truly appreciate it is to try some for yourself.
The artisan who made it
Nestled in the Abruzzo hills, facing the Adriatic sea, is the small town of Miglianico, is located the Ciavolich winery. Founded in the late 1950's, the Ciavolich winery is now jointly run by wife and husband Chiara and Gianluca. Abruzzo is largely known for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, but they also grow native grapes such as Cococciola and Passerina, only found in the oldest wineries and in very small quantity.
