This extra virgin olive oil achieved the gold medal in New York and silver medal in Japan in 2019, awarded by the world’s best olive oil sommeliers EVO IOOC on June 12, 2020 in Palmi Italy.
Our olive oil originates at the foot of an ancient country house in the rolling hills of Umbria. The olive grove consists of three varieties (70% Moraiolo, 15% Leccino and 15% Frantoio) and is known for its healthy and remarkably flavorful olive oil.
The olives of this extra virgin olive oil were picked in October 2022, when the olives are still green and they are still full of healthy antioxidants. Within 6 hours of picking, the olives were pressed and filtered and sealed with azotum at bottling to protect them from oxygen and keep them fresh. This oil has at least a shelf life until July 2024.
The result is an honestly produced, top quality extra virgin olive oil. The extra virgin label is due to an acidity and purity that is up to six times lower than the quota imposed.
At Casa Astrid, it’s also about sustainability. Our refill packaging is spectacularly less environmentally damaging than a traditional bottle. The numbers don’t lie: production requires 62% less fossil fuels, 80% less water, and releases 75% less greenhouse gases.
