Frantoio Muraglia Extra Virgin Olive Oil Rainbow Tin
Frantoio Muraglia extra virgin olive oil in a rainbow tin is a fine Italian olive oil in a decorative tin. The eye-catching design with intensely fruity olive oil inside makes a great gift or part of a hamper. Or just something lovely to have on your kitchen table!
The extra virgin olive oil is made from cold-pressed Coratina olives – a variety native to the Apulia region of Italy, where the Frantoio Muraglia olive groves are located. Coratina olives are unique in that they contain three times more antioxidant polyphenols than any other Italian olive variety. This gives the oil its intense flavour, with spicy notes and hints of astringency.
Use the fruttato intense olive oil over cold bean salads, or drizzle over a traditional bread all’acquasale. This is a rustic dish of stale bread soaked in cold water and plenty of salt, with lots of fresh vegetables and a glug of olive oil.
Frantoio Muraglia are passionate about olives. Watching over their company is the oldest olive tree in their grove – a majestic Coratina olive tree that is at least 450 years old and still gives fruit. They’ve been growing and pressing olives in the same way for nearly five generations of the Muraglia family, and their extra virgin olive oils have won over 16 awards in the past 10 years alone.
Ingredients: 100% extra virgin olive oil, obtained directly from coratina olives solely by mechanical means
