Centuries old, wild olivastro trees are found in small groves on the lands of Frantoi Cutrera. Sebastiano has given much throught to the oil these trees could yield. It is not easy to harvest and press a quality olive oil from uncultivated plants, but Sebastiano and his family have done so. This nectar is a very rare pressing of wild olives.

This wild olive oil has an incredibly high polyphenol content. 1000 milligrams per liter - "Mille"! By way of comparison, good olive oils contain an average of 200-300 milligrams of polyphenols, others barely 100. These phytochemicals, like the tannins of the wine, impact the quality, taste and smell of olive oil.

Just a few drops of the concentrated Mille provide intense flavor. Green olive fruits tick the nose and mouth, with a deliciously bitter spiciness. Notes of dried herbs and almonds are pronounced. Slowly this yields peppery, sharp, and slow.

Sebastiano recommends his green-gold "Mille" particularly with "Tagliata di Manzo" pink roast beef or a sharp counterpoint to the sweet Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena in a vinaigrette.

Harvested late September. Unfiltered. Protective black bottle.
