Fructus Ligurian Christmas Olive Oil


Fructus is a premium quality cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil made from mostly Ligurian Taggiasche olives with a small amount of other local olive varieties. This delicious cold-pressed olive oil has a pleasing fresh palate and delicate, sweet, fruity, almost buttery flavour with a slight peppery kick at the finish.

The Taggiasche olives used in Ardoino EVOO come from olive groves situated in the western part of Liguria, on terraces at approximately 650 metres above sea level. This produces a small crop that ripens later than olives in the rest of Italy. It takes about 4 kg of olives to make 1L of Fructus Ligurian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

It is also characteristically rich golden colour and sweet flavour. Fructus is marvellous with bread, dress salads, or season food when cooking is complete. However, its graceful flavour profile would be easily lost if used as a cooking oil.

Made in Italy.
