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.

Hi Missy, I'm glad you're still liking the olive oil, and sorry that the bottle size demoted a product you like to only 2 stars. FYI, the carbon footprint and manufacturing cost to offer olive oil in 5 different sizes as we did before is onerous, so we've opted into bottling a "Goldilocks size" half way between our old 250 ml and 500 ml sizes. The 375 ml size on offer today is the same price per oz as it was 4.5 years ago in 2018 despite cost increases in components, labor, water, and transportation. I hope you understand.

Smelled Wonderful!

The paper got caught on itself and I tugged a little. It popped out of my hand and shattered on my tile floor. It smelled wonderful as I cleaned it up. Watch the packaging when you are unpacking your order.

Favorite olive oil.

Wonderful, Lucero is by far my favorite olive oil and I was a happy girl when production began again. Liz is very accommodating and great to work with.
