Featured in The New York Times (May 22, 2015) Italy’s Treasured Olive Oil, at the Source.

We were in the right place at the right time when we met Filippo Alampi from Fattoria Ramerino at Olio Capitale in Trieste in March 2013.

We were struck by the superior quality of this extra virgin olive oil from his estate outside of Firenze. Primus is pressed from the earliest olives while Dulcis is pressed from olives that ripen a short time later. Primus is full of intensity, while Dulcis is slightly softer.

The aroma is of fresh olives and green grass. Primus brings forth an intensely spicy and bitter combination. With the fruity green olive taste, you may note hints of grass and artichoke. The blend is unique in our collection: Moraiolo (60%), Frantoio (20%), Leccino (10%), and altri or other (10%).

If you read the Washington Post article, Where to Buy Top Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (15 February 2017), we recommend this selection.

We have learned that Guadagnòlo is the name for a terra cotta jar used by millers ages ago to recover oil from the tools of the pressing, a lovely ancient find evidencing the value of oil then and now.

We recommend this with the local foods of Tuscany: ribollita, bean soups, grilled meats, and cooked vegetables. In each case, finishing with Primus will elevate your recipe.
