Extra virgin olive oil

There are three hectares of olive groves on the Cafaggio estate.

Raw material

The Villa Cafaggio Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced by pressing the following varieties of olives: 30% Frantoio, 30% Moraiolo, 20% Leccino and 20% Pendolino.

Harvest

All the different types of olive are hand-picked when perfectly ripe in November and December.

The olives are immediately cold-pressed in order to conserve the maximum freshness of the fruit.

Characteristics

The colour is an intense golden yellow with gentle green glints. The aroma is rich and complex with notes of cut grass and an intense fragrance of sage.

The palate is well-balanced, relatively low in acidity, and massively flavoursome with hints of artichokes, wild thistles, and sweet almonds.

Villa Cafaggio is a superior category Extra Virgin Olive Oil obtained directly from olives, solely by mechanic means and has less than 0.8% acidity.

Perfect on salads, bread, vegetables, and grilled meats.
