Ascolano Extra Virgin Olive Oil

About this Variety

Ascolano olives 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 where the centuries-old recipe for meat stuffed, deep fried ascolano olives has earned Denominazione di Origine Protetta (DOP) status as a protected origin food. 

Flavor & Enjoyment

Today, it 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 meats, or 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. Our customers in Japan appreciate its fruity flavor with both sushi and tofu, and we think you will, too.
Special note about the 2021 Harvest which supersedes our label copy:  we're bottling fresh oil in March 2022 and the Ascolano is 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 on the high side of "medium" rather than delicate.
