Castello della Paneretta Olive Oil

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 2018, has a delicate green aroma. The flavor is pleasantly bitter up front, like arugula or bitter greens. There's a good bit of peppery spice in the finish, more like a tickle than a kick.
