Rolando raves:"Intosso is wonderful drizzled on bruschetta, or used together with other PrimoGrano products to celebrate traditional foods of Abruzzo. Create a simple tomato sauce with Intosso and serve atop PrimoGrano Spaghettoni—made with a soft summer wheat cultivated in the Abruzzo hills."
2021 Harvest Notes Made from the monocultivar Intosso—a nearly extinct varietal from the Abruzzo region, prized for its large fruit and small seed—Intosso has the mild aroma of fennel and flavors of raw artichoke and almond, culminating in a lively pink pepper finish.
About the Olive Oil The olives are grown in a small plot in Pianella, Abruzzo, and each year are harvested by hand and milled within 8 hours of picking. In Abruzzo, Intosso olives are traditionally consumed as a table fruit, stored in terracotta bowls after a long process of salting and care.
