Giachi's Primolio extra virgin olive oil is from olives grown in the Florentine hills that are harvested manually and mechanically from end October to the first ten days in November. This is a great everyday extra virgin olive oil.
Cold pressing cold is done immediately, to maintain the fresh, pure aspects coming from unripe, green olives. The oil is low in acidity, with an excellent zesty taste. It's kept in a cool place and then cotton-filtered, before distributing onto the market, to prevent any natural deposit which might otherwise alter its excellent inherent features.
Visibly clear, the oil is an intense golden yellow with pale green nuances. The ample, embracing aroma comes with elegant vegetal notes of artichoke, wild cardoon, celery, lettuce and strong herbal hints of rosemary and field balm.
Its taste is fine, and has personality, endowed with tones of green tomato and a dried fruit finish. Bitter and piquant, decisive and well-balanced, it's excellent on bean salads, fresh salmon, octopus marinade, mushroom soups, first courses with clams or mussels, roast fish, grilled red meats and hard mature cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino.
