Castello della Paneretta Olive Oil

Terrifically typically Tuscan.

Castello della Paneretta sits majestically on a Tuscan hillside. In fact, it's almost too typically Tuscan to believe, surrounded by fields of olive and cypress trees and rolling vineyards. 

The oil is also typically Tuscan: full flavored, fantastically fruity, green, gorgeous, delicious. It builds to a peppery peak that hits you in the front and back of the throat. A two-cougher, so to speak. So thick it pours from the bottle like cream, so delicious I find myself thinking of more dishes to use it with. 

The bottle is as compelling as the oil: tall, thin, housed in its own box. It makes a stunning gift.

The current harvest of Paneretta, from olives picked and pressed in late 2017, has an earthy aroma reminiscent of mushrooms. That deep flavor comes through in the flavor after an initial bright bitterness that hits up front. The mouthfeel is lush and creamy, and there's an intense peppery kick that tickles the throat in the finish.
