Blood Orange Agrumato® captures the deep flavor of Sicilian blood oranges through its unique whole-fruit and olive crushing process. Whole Sicilian blood oranges are crushed together with olives in a state-of-the-art frantoio, sealing the essential oils of the blood orange zest in the resulting extra virgin olive oil. Drizzle Blood Orange Agrumato® over cured meats and aged cheeses, such as pecorino, as well as on vanilla gelato or orange sorbet.
AGRUMATO®, a precious condiment, is the result of the creativity and passion of the Ricci family from Lanciano, in Abruzzo. Traditionally in this region of Italy, olive farmers have celebrated the end of the harvest by crushing lemons with freshly picked olives. The Ricci family had the ingenuity to bottle this unique oil, reviving a nearly forgotten Abruzzese tradition, as well as create new flavors with different citrus fruits.
AGRUMATO® is the original. The Ricci family created and trademarked the word AGRUMATO®— from agrumi, meaning "citrus" in Italian—to describe their delicious olive oil with its bright citrus flavor,. AGRUMATO®'s incomparable flavor brightens dishes like no other oil can. Chefs use these ideal finishing condiments for drizzling over grilled meat or fish, for dressing fresh salads, and for pouring generously over vegetables. Many bakers also use AGRUMATO® oils in their pastry recipes.
