Opera Prima Olive Oil
500 ml
- Liguria, Italy (2016 harvest)

Use this light, silky olive oil as the Ligurians do, over fish, seafood, and other delicate dishes, and of course, pesto.

Flavor Notes

These late-harvest Taggiasche olives are picked by hand and pressed the same day to insure a yield extremely low in acidity. This golden olive oil with an ever-so-slight green tinge has a very light and delicate nose of ripe olives so characteristic of good olive oils made from this scarce taggiasche. It opens light and buttery on the lips and palate, refreshingly so, unlike some of the heavy oils from the south. This light buttery taste attains a hint of sweetness and almonds on the mid palate and leaves you with a clean finish and a smile.

About the Producer

Opera Prima is produced by the Pietrantica farm, which is located among the hills of inner Liguria in the area of Dolcedo. The groves are at a particularly high elevation for growing olives, 300 to 400 meters above sea level, which minimizes the number of parasites and the need for pest treatments.

Note about harvest dates: In the nothern hemisphere, olives are harvest and pressed between October and December.  Which means the current harvest is actually last year. So, for example, if we are in 2017, the current harvest year is 2016.
