Ascolano Extra Virgin Olive Oil

| /

Stock Status

Unlike the big brands we don't have bottomless tanks. We are sold out until Harvest 2023. Please sign up for notice when we're back in stock.

If you are a regular Ascolano user, I recommend Picual as a substitute. Current Picual stocks share about the same intensity as the Ascolano. The main difference is a more green tomato leaf aroma and tomato flavor for Picual versus the peaches and herbs for Ascolano.

Flavor & Enjoyment

Ascolano is our best loved oil for its unique aroma of peaches and tropical fruit with delicate ripe fruit and green herbal flavors and a sweet finish. Best suited for mild food pairings such as white meat; our customers in Japan appreciate its fruity flavor with both sushi and tofu, and we think you will, too. Other pairings include fresh cheeses and other dairy such as yogurt, cottage cheese, or ice cream. The fruit fat from olive oil emulsifies readily with milk fat creating a natural affinity. 

Special note about the 2021 Harvest which supersedes our label copy:  while  bottling fresh oil Spring 2022 we found the Ascolano still more robust than the past. Friends throughout the state who also grow Ascolano report the same, so we believe this is weather related. This oil is very well structured and exhibits all of the fruitiness of you'd expect, however, the intensity is "medium" rather than delicate.

About this Variety

Lucero became know for Ascolano EVOO because Corning was a table olive town, and Ascolano olive trees were originally planted in our area in the middle of the last century for the table olive industry as they are a relatively large and tender variety. Indeed, they are almost exclusively known as table olives in their native land, Provincia Ascoli Piceno, in the Le Marche region of Italy. The centuries-old recipe for meat stuffed, deep fried ascolano olives has earned Denominazione di Origine Protetta (DOP) status as a protected origin food there.

Grown on the Williams 160 Ranch in Corning CA, and milled by our friends nearby, Lucero Ascolano EVOO is a customer favorite and consistent winner with international olive oil judges winning annually for over a decade in competitions.

I love Lucero Olive Oil!

The olive oil was a gift for someone else so I won’t be using it, but the ordering process could not have been easier! Liz was extremely helpful, and my items arrived timely and in perfect condition.

I‘d forgotten how good!

I got the ascolano oil. For the last few years I couldn’t get Lucero. I’ve been using another decent brand but when I opened this bottle I realized what I’d been settling for! Lol. It’s just SO fresh & flavorful.
