Genovese Basil Olive Oil
Flavor & Enjoyment
Farm fresh Genovese basil, the same variety most often used for pesto, is crushed with late harvest California olives to make this fragrant herbal oil.
Fresh basil is used in this production, which yields a genuinely fresh green flavor and fragrance ready to enjoy on pasta, sautéed vegetables, or even on popcorn with a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano.
About Basil Olive Oil
Flavored olive oil means different things to different producers, and for us it means that real fresh or prepared fruit or herbs have been added to fresh olives and milled simultaneously. This is sometimes referred to as "co-milling". If the fruit being added is citrus, then the word "Agrumato" is used--a nod to the Sicilian producers who have popularized the practice. (Agrumi translates to "citrus").
