Italian Lemon Olive Oil Made with the Whole Citrus
The crisp freshness of Agrumato Lemon Olive Oil is achieved by a unique whole-fruit crushing process, which cannot be duplicated by the more common infusion method of other citrus flavored oils. Whole lemons are pressed with the olives—capturing the citrus' essential oils in the resulting olive oil—for bright, vivacious condiment full of pure lemon flavor.
How to use
Agrumato Lemon Olive Oil's crisp, clean citrus flavor pairs beautifully with fish and seafood. It is stunning as a garnish for scallop crudo, poached fish or grilled shrimp. For an easy appetizer, top slices of grilled bread with flaked Cod Fillets in Olive Oil, a drizzle of Agrumato Lemon Olive Oil and a spritz of fresh lemon juice for a touch of acidity.
Agrumato Lemon Olive Oil took home three awards in the Flavored Category at the 2017 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition: a Gold Medal, Best in Class and Best of Show (only 7 were given!). Plus Agrumato Tangerine Olive Oil won Silver in the same category.
About the producer
On the eastern coast of Italy, where soft sand meets the rolling waves of the Adriatic Sea, Lino and Francesco Ricci of Esperidia create an extraordinary product usually reserved for friends and family. At the end of each olive harvest, fresh, whole citrus fruits are cold-pressed with the olives marrying the two fruits' essential oils. This simultaneous pressing bestows an entirely different taste experience from that of olive oils with citrus essence added prior to bottling.
