The organic extra virgin olive oil of Azienda Agricola Del Monaco has a very loyal folowing amongst our customers. This oil is made by Luigi Emanuele Romano completely from olives grown on his certified organic estate in Strongoli, Calabria.
Luigi has planted his estate with varietals that compliment his native (and very rare) Tonda Strongolese. This ancient varietal has a very intense, grassy flovor, which is balanced with Leccino, Frantoio and others. He has obtained an oil with a unique charachter. Quite intense, but tempered and appropriate for many finishing applications.
Luigi is fastidious about hand-picking his olives and making sure that they are crushed witin hours of being picked, insuring that there is no oxidation in the fruit. This is a beautiful oil in a beautiful bottle.
