Ancient Italian butchery is an art without equal. Discover the fascinating world of artisanal cured meats!
|From olives grown in Chianti Classico|
|Strong and persistent bitter and spicy notes|
|Made from Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo cultivars|
In Chianti Classico, an area historically known for wine, olive trees have been planted by man, especially under the impetus of the de’ Medici family. In this fantastic subzone, not naturally suited to olive growing but endowed with such rich soil that it can sustain it with great results, olives have always been harvested very early because of the early winters. This method, which has now become a tradition, allows Chianti Classico oil to have a distinct personality.
Giacomo Grassi’s Chianti Classico DOP oil has distinct and persistent bitter and spicy notes.
On the nose there are notes of artichoke, cut field grass and the natural scent of olives at the right ripeness.
The taste is recognizable, definite and persistent.
In cooking it is the ideal oil to accompany typical Tuscan recipes. First and second courses that are not too delicate appreciate it, as do parmesan and gorgonzola or grilled meat and vegetables. It is best enjoyed with plain rice.
It is produced in limited quantities due to climatic and territorial conditions but manages to retain its fantastic organoleptic qualities for a long time.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Olives of cultivar Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo
There are many benefits to be gained from a very pure, high-quality Italian extra virgin olive oil: thanks to the high presence of polyphenols and oleocanthal, the main culprits responsible for that pungency and bitterness that made us fall in love with it, EVO oil has very high anti-inflammatory properties that make it a real natural medicine; the presence of almost exclusively monounsaturated fats allow EVO oil to go to reduce cholesterol, thanks to regular consumption over time; finally, Italian green gold has a considerable amount of vitamins, particularly group D, which are excellent for the heart, immune system and bones, and group E, called youth vitamins, thanks to their ability to act on cells by slowing down the aging of skin, hair and the whole body.
One last but very important benefit: it will make you dream thanks to its Mediterranean scents and its always-to-be-discovered taste!
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
