Gianfranco Becchina's estate has more than 3,000 olive trees of the Nocellara del Bellice variety. Interspersed among these trees are 700 ancient lemon trees which at the time of the olive harvest have the first green, unripe lemons on the plant.

Gianfranco has passionately tended these trees throughout the years and has come up with a new way of making a spectacular oil that combines these classic flavors in a unique product

The lemons are picked when still green, and with the use of potato peelers, the fragrant green zest is peeled off, with careful attention to keep off any pith. For every 600 kg of olives (the total capacity of the pressing vat) the skins of about 200 kg of green lemons are mixed in and put through the entire process of extra virgin olive oil extraction.

A unique and personal method, Gianfranco is quick to point out. The resulting oil has an extraordinary depth of flavor that is unmatched in other arficial or infused oil.

Olio Verde al Limone is ideal to drizzle over grilled fish and to pour over platters of crudo, such as tuna, sea-urchin, fresh shrimp and octopus. The fragrance and flavor is unmatched when drizzled over grilled chicken or vegetables platters including grilled fennel, eggplant, zucchini and radicchio. Liven up any salad or use on a sliced avocado with just a pinch of sea-salt. Pure perfection.
