ALEANDRI OLIVE GROVE
The Aleandri olive grove, situated near Offida, Le Marche is farmed organically by Tiziano. Several years ago he saved the abandoned grove and brought the trees back to life. The rejuvenated trees now look out over rolling hills of vineyards which the area is famous for. Le Marche is the home to some of Italy's oldest olive groves which supplied oil to Rome during the time of the Roman Empire.
ALEANDRI EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The trees on the Aleandri family grove are Leccino, Pendolino, Moraiolo, Maurino varieties.
A medium oil that is lightly fruity with aromas reminiscent of olive leaf, artichoke and almonds along with the scent of fresh cut meadow grass. You can taste the antioxidant polyphenols in the oil’s pleasant bitterness and spicy after taste. Use with flavoursome seafood or simply as a dressing on fresh salads to enjoy this dynamic oil with all its complementing taste properties.
ABOUT THE FARMER
The superb oil from the Aleandri groves is in no small part due to Tiziano's legendary skills as an olive oil sommelier, pruner and miller. Overseeing his own milling means Tiziano blends the oil each year himself ensuring a perfect balance of flavour between the fruity and bitter notes.
