Tangerine Agrumato® captures the sweet and tangy flavor of Italian tangerines through its unique whole-fruit and olive crushing process. Whole sweet tangerines are crushed together with olives in a state-of-the-art frantoio, sealing the essential oils of the tangerine zest in the resulting extra virgin olive oil. Tangerine Agrumato® is delicious on risotto with prawns, as well as paired with pork, and even used in making cakes and brownies.
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.
