Pressed from the ancient Peranza olive trees tended for five generations by the Muraglia family, the award winning Frantoio Muraglia monocultivar olive oil is one of the best we've ever dipped a fresh focaccia in. The Peranzana olive is native to Apulia and has low acidity which makes it ideal for pairing with delicate foods such as seafood. Following ancient tradition, the olives are harvested by hand and are crushed using a stone mill. With initial notes of dill, fennel, artichoke and pepper, this olive oil has a spicy but balanced finish, ideal for drizzling, finishing, and making the most of the freshest seasonal dishes. A perfect host gift, if we do say so ourselves. 250 ml/8.5 fl oz
About the line: Frantoio Muraglia, operated for five generations by the Muraglia family, prioritizes preserving the biodiversity of the agricultural landscape of Apulia and protecting the olive trees which are so vital to their company. The oldest olive tree on their estate is estimated to be 450 years old and produced the olives for their very first pressing.
