Marina Colonna Lemon (Granverde) Infused EVOO
Free Shipping on orders $50+!
Marina remembered that her father, many years ago, would add lemons to the last batch of olives being crushed to produce an oil with the natural zest of lemons, to be used on fish dishes as well as on vegetables. Her father called it Granverde, thus the name. The estate started producing lemon infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil for commercial sale in 1990 using only organic lemon peel from lemons grown from their Gargano groves. By adding the lemon peel during the pressing of the olives, you get a true infused EVOO.
This EVOO infused with lemon is a true kitchen staple. It's suitable for fish, as a marinade for shellfish, or on raw and smoked fish. It makes a fantastic dressing for cured and dried meats, and it is excellent as a dip, on steamed vegetables and on pasta. This EVOO can be used in the preparation of dishes with white meat as well as in baking.
All of our Marina Colonna EVOOs come beautifully packaged in a 250ml glass Anfora-shaped bottle.
Meet The Makers
Marina Colonna inherited her father's Molise-based 55 hectare olive farm in 1996. Growing up, her father always pressed the olives with the rinds of their organic lemons to produce a true infused Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Marina continued that practice with many ingredients. Try her unique Basil, Cinnamon, or Truffle Infused EVOO for a 'wow' experience.View The Profile
