Product Description

Frantoio Olivestri Siloro D.O.P. Umbria
There are few better olive oils made than Siloro.

 This oil is from the harvest, October-December 2014

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.

Siloro is the finest oil made by Olivestri. 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.

Siloro carries the prestigious European Union Seal "D.O.P. Umbria."   D.O.P. certifies that this oil's origin is 100% Umbria.

 

Tasting Notes: Siloro 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. It's Gold Medal at the Olive Oils of the World competition in the category of D.O.P. Umbria, assures you that it is the perfect example of Umbrian oil.

 

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.

 

Available in 1/2 liter or 3/4 liter bottle.  This same oil is available in 5 liter tins with the brand name Fiordolio.

    We received our first bottle of nuovo Frantoio Olivestri last Dec.(2012) as a gift. Once we tasted it became an instant favorite. Without a doubt it is the finest we have ever had. We have ordered it twice this year and are looking forward to this years new oil.

    tried this product in a restaurant, had to find it for home use. We did a bread dipping taste test with this and several other premium oils, this won and not even close. Keep up the great work!
