Intosso Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2016 Harvest

An exquisite finishing oil, perfect drizzled on bruschetta, or used together with other PrimoGrano products to celebrate traditional foods of Abruzzo. Create a simple tomato sauce of Pera d’Abruzzo tomatoes and Intosso and serve atop PrimoGrano spaghetti—made with a soft summer wheat cultivated in the Abruzzo hills. 

Intosso is an elegant, balanced oil, made from the monocultivar Intosso, a nearly extinct varietal from the Abruzzo region, prized for its large fruit and small seed. Mild and fruity, with a complex blend of artichoke and tomato leaf aromas culminating in a peppery finish.

This harvest, from a small plot of 478 plants in the Pianella region of Abruzzo, was picked by hand in the first week of October and milled within 8 hours of picking through a 2-phase continuous cycle process.

Region: Abruzzo

Olive cultivars: 100% Intosso Monocultivar

Traditions: Intosso olives were traditionally consumed as a table fruit, stored in terracotta bowls after a long process of salting and care. They continue to feature as a traditional Abruzzi appetizer.
