Oro Don Vincenzo Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil – A Healthy Indulgence
Premium extra virgin olive oil is considered the soul of the mediterranean diet. In Italy it’s used almost in every recipe as it elevates flavours containing the health-promoting nutrients that extra virgin olive oil is famous for.
This premium quality Italian organic extra virgin olive oil from Calabria is made using only the finest olives, pressed when the fruit is still green in order to obtain a fresh juice with a fruity flavour, very high in antioxidants. This amazing product is the result of 4 generations of experts and passionate olive oil producers. Isabella, the co-founder of the brand, runs the company together with her half English mother, dividing her time between London and the family’s estate in the south of Italy. Talking about quality in extra virgin olive oil Isabella always says: “My family has cultivated this olive grove since the beginning of the last century. My grandfather (Vincenzo) was a doctor and a true believer in the incredible health benefits associated with extra virgin olive oil. For this reason he was obsessed with ensuring a high level of quality and taught us how to make an oil for connoisseurs looking for excellent Italian extra virgin”.
Oro Don Vincenzo has recently been awarded a gold star at Great Taste Awards and has been selected by British Vogue – November issue- for their Christmas Hamper.
The range includes also a DOP Lametia (Protected Designation of Origin), considered the “Gran Riserva” award winning extra virgin and a light extra virgin, called Il Classico, ideal not only for dressing but also for slow cooking.
