- Region: Abruzzo
In Abruzzo, on the Adriatic Sea, at the end of each harvest, farmers create a special oil for their family and friends. In their frantoio (olive mill) on the farm, the farmers crush and press small amounts of hand-harvested olives with fresh citrus fruit to create oils such as Agrumato. Agrume means "citrus."
The crisp freshness of Agrumato is achieved by the whole-fruit crushing process, which cannot be duplicated by the more common infusion method of other citrus flavored oils. By crushing the olives with the citrus, the purity of each fruit flavor is maintained. The resulting oil is an exquisitely versatile condiment.
Manicaretti brings you four of these unique oils, produced by the Ricci Family. Each Agrumato oil comes packaged in an elegant bottle with images of Renaissance paintings on the labels.
In a delectable melding of fresh ingredients and time-honored methods, the award-winning producers of Agrumato citrus olive oils have also created their Pan'Agrumato. These panettone-style Christmas cakes are made with extra virgin olive oil (instead of the traditional butter), giving them a delicious, light, soft crumb. Available with Montepulciano Wine (2018 sofi Award winner!) or Orange Agrumato.
