Rustichella d'Abruzzo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2016 Harvest

Rustichella d'Abruzzo Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Making a tomato sauce? This is an excellent addition—the sweetness of the tomato pairs harmoniously with the bitterness in the oil.

Keep a bottle in your pantry for everyday cooking, it will make all of your food taste splendid. 

Medium to medium-robust with gentle astringency. A pleasant fruity aroma, and a very pungent grassy finish. Its full of character, and notably more robust than in year’s past.

The Vestine hills—located between the foothills of the Apennines and the Adriatic sea—are covered with centuries-old olive orchards. The mild Adriatic breezes keep the temperatures quite warm throughout the year, allowing the olives to grow in a very healthy environment without the use of chemicals or pesticides. The olives are very healthy on a very regular basis, unlike in other parts of Italy where seasonal flutuations seem to be more prevalent.

The farmland owned and managed by Gianluigi Peduzzi produces a bountiful quantity of olives, which are milled in a very modern community frantoio (olive mill) located a stone's throw from the family's compound. Gianluigi works together with the farmers and the olive mill to ensure that the olives are fresh and pressed within the same day of their harvest. The oil is then decanted in stainless steel tanks for about a month and filtered before bottling. 

Region: Vestine hills, Pianella, Abruzzo

Olive varietals: 100% Dritta Pianellese

Use this olive oil as Nicolina Peduzzi does: generously.


Any pasta sauce will benefit from the use of this authentic, flavorful oil. Nicolina Peduzzi, the matriarch of Rustichella d'Abruzzo, is a master when it comes to making pasta dishes. There is nothing like a bowl of spaghetti with lots of thinly sliced zucchini that have caramelized, almost deep-fried, in abundant Rustichella d'Abruzzo Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The same can be said for a dish of aglio, olio e peperoncino (pasta with garlic, olive oil and red pepper flakes) as well as a basic tomato sauce that shimmers with a thick layer of olive oil.

In the center of the table at Nicolina's home, there is always a bowl of olive oil full of red pepper flakes, which is poured in careful quantities on top of the pasta dish instead of finishing with Parmigiano.
