Antonio Pettinicchi's extra virgin olive oil
The health and nutritional properties of this oil are by now a well known scientific fact, and also its bein especially suitable in the diet of young children, due to the acidic content which is similar to that of breast milk. Not to mention its role in the prevention of cardiovasculare illness, arteriosclerosis, bone decay, some types of tumours and diseases relating to the digestive system. It is much easier to digest than other oils and animal fats. Rich in Vitamin E.It also resists much better at high temperatures (it “smokes” at 280° compared with 140°/220° limits of other oils), which it is advised also for use as a cooking and frying agent and not only as a condiment. The olive oil produced by Antonio Pettinicchi is a natural product of very high quality, obtained from wholesome olives, hand picked only when suitably ripe. They are grown on the Lucito hills at an altitude of 300-500 m above sea level, far from any possible source of pollution. The olives are ground before the day is out using stone millstones and they are pressed while still cold. The resulting oil, left in the dark at a temperature of no more than 18°, preserves all the natural features of the olives: the fruity taste, the mellow flavour, the golden colour with strong tints of green and an almondy aftertaste lending it a certain sweet, soft and graceful quality. 100% NATURAL. NO ADDED PRESERVATIVES
