The olives in our flavoured oils come from the village of Moscufo in Abruzzo. The village lies within the Apruntino-Pescarese DOP region, which means its production and authenticity is under strict legal controls. In fact this was the first ever DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) oil in Europe, so it pretty much wrote the rule book. The rule book here is pretty short; it just says ‘Leave it to nature’.
This regal oil puts king of herbs basil in the spotlight. Divinely fragrant, it's a little taste of heaven on earth. It's also versatile enough for almost every occasion: think of it as your larder's very own little black dress.
Corrado is an olive oil evangelist, and tireless experimenter. There aren’t many olive press barons who would be willing to experiment with making things like thyme or even chocolate olive oil, but Corrado thrives on innovation. He is also a workaholic, and has been known to notch up as many as three days without sleep during the height of the harvest season.
