Harvest Year 2015-2016
Rich. Balanced. Mellow.
Harvested later in the season, Brezza Tirrena Olio Maturo has a more balanced, mellow flavor than our Presto oil. By waiting for the Itrana olive to mature, the flavor of the olive mellows out to achieve a more full-bodied oil and a more traditional, golden-hued oil. A more balanced flavor profile with fruity, aromatic undertones of almond and artichoke, OLIO MATURO is the perfect compliment to any meal or celebration.
Harvest Year 2015-2016
Spicy. Colorful. Strong.
Our only aromatically infused oil, Brezza Tirrena Olio Peperoncino is an oil that hides deep complexity beneath it’s spicy exterior. Infused with the chile peppers known as “Guarda in Cielo” which translated to “Look to Heaven,” OLIO PEPERONCINO is an oil for anyone who craves spicy flavors. By crushing the chiles simultaneously with the olives, the flavors are allowed to mingle and achieve a spicy, complex balance that will be the talk of any meal.
Peppery. Bitter. Robust.
The taste profile of the Brezza Tirrena Olio Presto is a result of hand-picking the Itrana olives earlier in the harvest season. A less mature olive produces a higher amount of heart-healthy polyphenols which create a more bitter and peppery oil than most people are accustomed to. From the moment you open the bottle, you are struck with a pungent pepper smell and quickly realize that this unlike most olive oils you have ever experienced.
