500 ml Sicily, Italy (2012 Harvest)
Pianogrillo Extra Virgin Italian Olive Oil - this is the 2013 oil (2012 harvest)
Our understanding is that Pianogrillo was hit with the blight and limited or no oil this year. We are hoping that some will show up at some point this year.

Without a doubt one of our favorite estate olive oils from Italy. This gold-green olive oil is intensely fruity on the nose, explosive even, with bold notes of green vegetable and green tomato. It opens with a rich butteriness on the lips and tongue before giving way to green olive and green vegetable.

Hints of artichoke, tomato, and a spiciness at the back of the throat give this oil a long delightful finish. It is a full-flavored condiment olive oil with a Sicilian flair.

Try Pianogrillo on... anything! Start with toasted bread and move on through soup, vegetable, and fish courses, all finished with Pianogrillo.

About the Producer
For centuries, the Piaccione family has owned the Piangrillo farm in the Ragusa district of eastern Sicily. The farm stretches over 50 hectares in the heart of the Iblei Mountains. Lorenzo Piccione has turned the old estate into the modern Pianogrillo farm, thanks to his passion and love for nature and for his land.

The Pianogrillo farm is organic in respect to the EEC rules. Chemical manipulations and pesticides aren't allowed. The olive grove is cultivated using natural products and simple agricultural techniques. The average height of the olive grove is about 350 meters above sea level, and at this height the olive fly is rare and easily controlled.

Most of the olive trees belong to several species: cultivar "Tonda Iblea" (or "Cetrale"), and cultivar "Moresca". There are also "Nocellara messinese" and, recently, a new olive grove of "Carolea" for pollination.

The olive harvesting for Pianogrillo generally begins in October and ends in December. Each olive is picked by hand, one by one, directly from the olive tree branches. The pressing is done in the oil mill "Alfa Laval" on the Pianogrillo farm within 12 hours of harvesting.

Best ever
I normally do not like the taste of olive oil (store bought).  I love this oil.  It has a lemon and citris flavor to it.  Perfect for salad dressings.
