Puglia, also known as the “spur” on the Italian “heel”, is famous for extra vrigin olive oil with some 60 million trees growing there and cultivation dating back several thousand years. The Gargano peninsula has a wide isolated mountain massif with highlands and several peaks which form the backbone of the Gargano Promontory projecting into the Adriatic Sea. Famous for seafood, so naturally this oil is well suited to seafood dishes.
Slightly fruity with hints of almond and tomato along with fresh cut grass and a lovely balance between its spiciness and bitterness. Goes well drizzled fresh over seafood and salads.
