Taster’s notes, 2021 Harvest:
Aroma is fresh and floral with hints of fresh herbs followed by the scent of green almond. On the palate, notes of grass and tomato leaf with hints of black pepper. A magnificent robust oil, both complex and balanced, with a remarkable fluidity that compliments the sophistication of its flavors.
Piro.’s robustness adds excitement to meals, and pairs well with legumes, seafood, poultry and beef; it also marvelously complements spicy foods.
Piro. is a great cooking oil that will bring out sublime flavors in your medium to medium/high temp. sautéing, roasting and poaching. Try it also as a condiment on raw or roasted veggies, tossed into a salad, drizzled over fish and meat, or add as a finishing touch to soups and stews.
Olio Piro extra virgin olive oil begins in the olive groves on Mount Amiata, above the vineyards where the prized Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced. The volcanic soil of this region, as well as its altitude, contribute to the favorable conditions under which our olives are grown. The early harvest of green, unripe fruit results in low yields of extra virgin olive oil with bold flavor and increased levels of antioxidants. Milled within hours of harvest, our oil is immediately filtered and stored under optimal conditions in oxygen-free, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks until it is bottled to order. The careful handling is continued with shipping to the U.S. under temperature-controlled conditions either by airplane or boat.
These careful steps ensure that when you open your bottle of Olio Piro, it is fresh and flavorful.
Most olive oils are merely supporting players, but Olio Piro, with its bold, fresh flavor, ascends to a starring role in your kitchen and on your table. Its robustness adds excitement to meals, and pairs well vegetables, legumes, seafood, poultry and beef; it even complements spicy foods. Try it as a condiment for raw vegetables, tossed into a salad, drizzled over grilled vegetables and meat, or add as a finishing touch to bean soups or stews.
