Agrumato Citrus Olive Oils: Fresh-Picked, Citrus Flavor
Plus 5 Ways to Add Zip, Zing & Zest
In Lanciano, on the Adriatic Coast of Abruzzo, Agrumato Citrus Olive Oils from Esperidia ("agrume" meaning citrus in Italian) are traditionally made at the end of the olive harvest. Whole lemons and tangerines are pressed with the olives (no artificial flavorings here)—infusing the fruit's essential oils—for a zesty, vivacious condiment that captures the true essence of peak-season citrus.
These precious oils—usually reserved for friends and family of the farmers and millers—add a burst of Italian sunshine straight out of the bottle. Drizzle over poached fish, toss simply with winter lettuces or even use as a finishing flourish to vanilla gelato or citrus sorbetto. Add even more zip, zing & zest with our 6 favorite ways to use Agrumato citrus olive oils (listed below).
