The profile is enriched by complex vegetal notes, including leaf, grass, artichoke, green tomato, and apple. Robust and full-bodied, with hints of celery, lettuce, and basil. The spicy and bitter tastes are pronounced yet pleasant and balanced. Notes of green almond contribute to the oil's elevated fragrance and quality. Ideal for lentil appetizers, carpaccio, soups, red meat starters, grilled wild game, and aged cheeses.

The Itrana olive, native to Lazio, Italy, is primarily utilized as a table olive due to its easily removable flesh. Its oil boasts notable fruity notes with a moderate level of bitterness and spiciness. Itrana Extra Virgin Olive Oil is distinguished by its remarkable aroma, reminiscent of freshly cut grass, artichoke, tomato, and green almond.

Just like our beloved Quattrociocchi Olivastro, this oil is made purely from 100% Itrana olives. What makes it special? It proudly carries the prestigious IGP label, showing it hails from a specific area. But more than just a geographical tag, the IGP label represents the enduring traditions and dedication to sustainability of Rome's people.

With its tempting scents of green olives, tomato leaves, celery, and hints of green apple, it's a unique sensory experience.
