Product Description

This oil is from the harvest, October-December 2015

 

Firodolio is the same olive oil as Siloro - the former is packaged in five liter tins and the latter in bottles.

 

This Italian oil is from Umbria on the Tuscan border near Montepluciano and Cortona. It derives its perfect balance from Tuscany’s big, strong tradition and Umbria’s more mellow background.

Made in very small quantities with the utmost care and attention to quality, with a select mix of olives (Leccino, Frantoio, Moraiolo, Dolce  Agogia) that are picked starting in late October to insure a high percentage of under-ripe fruit, producing the golden-green color and an extraordinarily low .2 degree of acidity, with a perfect balance between fruit and acidity.  The olives are always pressed within 24 hrs. of being picked to insure a fresh-tasting oil very high in polyphenols which are the good-health promoting anti-oxidants that reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.

 

Tasting NotesFiordolio is a golden oil with deep green overtones and a classic Tuscan/Umbrian nose of freshly cut grass and the intoxicating aroma of freshly pressed olives in the frantoio. The tastes are very complex and intense with many overtones. The finish is mildly peppery.  This oil has a perfect structure that, once tasted, will entice you back for more.

 

This oil is for discriminating palates that prefer their olive oils to add character and nuance to their dishes.   This oil is perfect for finishing all roasted meats, it is spectacular used raw over cooked vegetables like asparagus or tomatoes.   It  is also a good general purpose oil for sautéing and preparing all your Mediterranean dishes.

 

You can get this same oil in 1/2 and  3/4 liter bottles labeled as Siloro.

 

 Five liter tins are the most economical way purchase olive oil. Did you know that olive oil is only crushed once a year?  The oil you buy in August is exactly the same as the oil you buy in January - provided that you know it is from the current harvest!   5-Liters (1.3 gallons or less than 7 bottles) is a very practical quantity for the average home.

 

It is, however, important that you care for you oil, and we have some recommendations here: Caring for Olive Oil.

  1. Yummy, trusted. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2016

    I have purchased many of the 5 liter tins of Olivestri Fiordolio. The oil is fresh, consistent, and important for me, from a now trusted estate and distributor. It's a little expensive to have shipped to Washington State and sometimes not very well packaged, but being in a tin no breakage yet.
