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 for this extra virgin olive oil were picked in October 2021 (early harvest, when the olives are still green and full of healthy antioxidants) The olives were pressed and filtered within 6 hours of picking and sealed with azotum at bottling to protect against oxygen and prolong freshness. This oil has a minimum shelf life of June 2023.
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.
The Casa Astrid pure olive oil can be tasted in bottles of 250, 500 and 750 ml. Not only very tasty in salads or for frying fish and meat, but also proven healthy.
