for any occasion

We have almost 1000 trees spread over 4 ha, made up of the following four varieties:

Leccino (Italian variety)

Nose: Citrus, oranges, nuts and caramel
Palate: Nuts, milk chocolate, hot spices, chilli and rocket.
A medium pepperiness with a noticeable long finish. We find that the boldness of this oil makes it ideal as a dipping oil. With flavours this good all you need is some crusty bread and this delicious oil – just watch it disappear!

 

PICUAL (Spanish variety)

Nose: apples, tomato, strawberry and green melon.
Palate: green banana, bitter greens, spinach
A medium to robust pepperiness. Perfect as a base to your favourite sauces or ragùs. The sweetness combined with the fresh flavour is perfect in dishes such as gazpachos, pestos or added to a salad of plump tomatoes and fresh basil.

 

PICHOLINE (French variety)

Nose: Asparagus, lemon, lime, cut grass, lettuce.
Palate: cut grass, rocket, sorrel, spinach and green banana skins.
A robust, verging on hot pepperiness. If you like your oils ‘herbaceous’ or ‘grassy’ then this is the one for you! Wonderful sloshed over your favourite summer salad greens; or vegetable salads

 

FRANTOIO (Italian variety)

Nose: Apples, pears and nutmeg.
Palate: Sweet spices, nutmeg, melon, sorrel, rocket and chilli.
Another robust oil with a peppery, robust finish. This full bodied Italian varietal is best paired with hearty, rustic recipes – great drizzled over hot vegetables or fish. Taste this and think of Tuscany.
