This is the oil from the Washington Post article, Beyond Extra Virgin (October 19, 2011).

"With Oro you get a well balanced oil, perfect for enhancing cooked foods. Add this condiment to finish your steak, soups, or vegetables."

Harvested in late October and early November, this is Davide Borselli’s olive oil from Monte Amiata in the province of Grosseto. La Poderina Toscana hosts art students each summer and their families have been raving about this extra virgin olive oil, a Seggianese monocultivar, organically produced, and extracted with the Sinolea method. Very low acidity.

What makes this estate even more interesting is that they’ve taken the “green movement” to heart. The farm is organic and the energy for the pressing comes from photovoltaic energy cells. The farm uses biomass heating as well for hot water and to heat the farm house. We can’t think of another producer who so eliminated or reduced outside energy sources. (We almost want to apologize for using an ocean-freighter to bring the oil to the U.S.)

The family began to acquire the farm in the 1980s and began planting the trees. In 1995 they added the mill and the cellar. Davide’s time at university was spent studying agronomy to take the production to the next level.

Davide tells us the family’s production uses modern methods with the Mori crusher to extract oil, drop by drop, without using water. The result is an oil full of polyphenols, antioxidants that preserve the human body. The intense aroma of the olive oil is very persistent and it tastes very strong and spicy.

Olivastra Seggianese is an ancient tree, and while they have planted new trees they also have trees 800-900 years old and they take care of them whole the year. The Olivastra Seggianese cultivar produces a powerful olive oil, intensely fruity and with a very balanced taste.

Characteristics: hints of flowers, delicate grasses. Expansive, with some bitter notes, but not aggressive. Oro (Olivastra Seggianese) is less intense and more delicate than Argento. Oro can also be thought of as the farm's signature oil, highly representative of the special, notable, DOP Seggianese trees of the region. 

Ideal for seafood and fish, especially cuttlefish, shrimp, calamari, and clams.
