Hand-harvested from gorgeous Leccino trees and rigorously cold-pressed within mere hours of being harvested, our Certified Organic Leccino is an exquisite example of its variety. Olive Oil & Beyond is proud supporting artisan producers. Leccino is a primary olive cultivar all over Italy and it is believed to have originated in Tuscany. FLAVOR PROFILES:
Our Italian Leccino has the characteristic golden color of its variety, a grassy aroma, and a buttery consistency. Its flavor is sweet and grassy with hints of almond. It has a fruity aftertaste and leaves a polite, peppery sensation after swallowing. PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
This Leccino's concentration of important antioxidants makes it a valuable nutritional supplement, in addition to being a delicious extra virgin olive oil. Pair it with our premium aged Pear, Black Currant or Champagne Balsamic vinegar for a terrific salad dressing or dip for bread. When oil is as nutritious as this one, it is more than a condiment for your food--it is an ingredient!
Organic is much more than merely a label or a certification. Organic stands for quality and conviction-- for the responsible use of nature's resources.100% Monocultivar Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Certified Organic; D.O.P.
