The 2022 vintage of Olio Piro boasts a beautiful bouquet of green olive fruit and fresh-cut green grass. This harmonious oil has lingering flavors of green almond, green tea and herbs accompanied by background notes of black pepper and cinnamon. Balanced and robust, the freshness of this oil is unmistakable.
While most olive oils are merely supporting players, Piro. is fit for a starring role in your kitchen. Its robustness adds excitement to meals, and pairs well vegetables, legumes, seafood, poultry and beef; it even complements spicy foods.
Piro. is a great cooking oil that will bring out sublime flavors in your medium to medium/high temp. sautéing, roasting and poaching. Try it also as a condiment on raw or roasted veggies, tossed into a salad, drizzled over fish and meat, or add as a finishing touch to soups and stews.
Olio Piro extra virgin olive oil begins in the olive groves on Mount Amiata, above the vineyards where the prized Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced. The volcanic soil of this region, as well as its altitude, contribute to the favorable conditions under which our olives are grown. The early harvest of green, unripe fruit results in low yields of extra virgin olive oil with bold flavor and increased levels of antioxidants. Milled within hours of harvest, our oil is immediately filtered and stored under optimal conditions in oxygen-free, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks until it is bottled to order. The careful handling is continued with shipping to the U.S. under temperature-controlled conditions either by airplane or boat.
These careful steps ensure that when you open your bottle of Olio Piro, it is as fresh and flavorful as it was when we made it in our mill.
