Free Shipping on orders $75+!
The 46th Parallel marks the northernmost area in the world with an olive growing tradition due to the “lake effect” of Lake Garda. The olives are harvested at an early stage of maturity to enhance the oil's polyphenol content, which increases the health benefits.
Color: yellow with visible green highlights
Aroma: medium fruity with appealing fresh notes reminiscent of green almonds
Flavor: balance overall, with a distinct yet slight bitterness and a stronger spicy finish
Pairings: It is an ideal condiment since it does not overwhelm the flavor of foods. It goes well with fish and raw vegetables including salad.
The olives are harvested at an early stage of maturity to enhance the oil's polyphenol content, which increases the health benefits. Olives that are properly grown, harvested, milled and bottled contain natural antioxidants, which limit the formation of abnormal functioning of cellular membranes. High quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil may protect against cell aging caused by free radicals, as well as the development of tumor cells. It is recommended to consume as least 2 to 3 tablespoons of high quality Extra Olive Oil with food daily to improve health.
Meet The Makers
Agraria Riva del Garda won over Randall's heart and stomach at a blind tasting of 100+ EVOOs at Vinitaly. It is not logical that superior EVOO could come from Lake Garda because of how far north it is. However, the soft breezes coming from the south get trapped by the edges of the Dolomite mountains and create an ideal micro-climate.View The Profile
