Fructus is a premium quality cold pressed extra virgin olive oil made from mostly Ligurian Taggiasche olives with a small amount of other local olive varieties.
This delicious cold pressed olive oil has a pleasing fresh palate and delicate, sweet, fruity almost buttery flavour with a slight peppery kick at the finish.
The acidity level is between 0.4% and 0.5%. (Extra virgin olive oil must have an acidity level of less than 0.8%.)
The Taggiasche olives used in Ardoino EVOO come from olive groves situated in the western part of Liguria, on terraces at approximately 650 metres above sea level. This produces a small crop that ripens later than olives in the rest of Italy. It takes about 4 kg of olives to make 1L of Fructus Olive Oil.
