Lucero Ascolano EVOO, 500 ml

| /

In stock


Flavor & Enjoyment

Ascolano is our best loved oil for its unique aroma of peaches and tropical fruit with ripe fruit and green herbal flavors and a sweet finish. The 2023 crop is highly aromatic with a medium intensity pungency. Our 3rd party sensorial and chemical testing for the state is pending and will be published as soon as available.

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. 

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.

Lucero Ascolano EVOO is a customer favorite and consistent winner with international olive oil judges winning annually for over a decade in competitions.

Ascolano Olive oil and White Balsamic Vinegar

EXCELLENT!!!! I am so thrilled to have Lucero olive oil back! I have been an avid fan of Lucero olive oil for 20+ years and was so disheartened when you shut down. Your blended oils are very good, but the unique selection of single varietal oils you produced was unmatched by anyone (Sevillano and Ascolano being my all time favorites). Your White, Pear and Peach balsamic were also the best I've tasted anywhere. It's wonderful to have my fresh new bottles of Ascolano arrive just as my garden tomatoes are coming on strong. Welcome Back!

Gourmet delight!

I have always loved your olive oils.. They are always richly flavored and delicious. The Ascolano is lovely and fruity and excellent in salads as well as drizzled on French olive bread. Scrumptious!

Ascolano EVOO

I’m very happy that I discovered this fruity EVOO, excellent mouthfeel. I drizzle it on my steamed vegetables, or tossed spring mix salad, with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. It also keeps well in a dark cupboard, still fresh after nine months! I’ve also given EVOO and the Melanzana Fig balsamic vinegar as gifts which were well received. Liz’s a joy to work with.
