Poggiagliolmi Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 500ml
Premium Quality of Early Harvest
We harvest our olives early, in October. In late harvest, the fruits will “swell up” because of the rainy season, producing more oil. Harvesting early means less oil but is of higher quality and more premium. They are high in polyphenols (antioxidants) and other flavour components. Our early harvest produces more aromatic, nutritious, high chlorophyll oil and carries our distinctive peppery “sting in the throat” sensation loved by our fans.

What makes us different?
1. Premium Quality
Harvested early before the olives “swell up” by the rainy season. Less oil, more olives are needed but nutrients are more “concentrated” and have a more distinctive taste.
2. We Do Not “Overplant”
One of the things that sets us apart from other olive growers is we plant our trees far apart from each other, giving them plenty of root space between each other. Other plants are also grown in between the trees to add “missing” nutrients into the soil, producing better quality olives.
3. Olives from Tuscany, Italy
Tuscany is one of the 4 regions that produces the best olive oil in Italy. Tuscan olive oil is known for their “bolder” flavours.
4. Signature Peppery, “Sting in the throat” Taste
This distinctive flavour is one of the signatures of our oil. The early harvest, freshly pressed oil and geographical region are the requirements for this sought-after sensation.
5. Limited Quantity
Being a true artisanal olive oil grower and producer, we produce very limited amount of these precious oil once a year.
