Many people ask us "what is cold pressed olive oil?" Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil means that the oilve was pressed only once, and in our case, within 24 hours of harvest, in an environment that was less than 86 degrees Farenheit to help prevent fermentation. This process ensures that your oil has the best flavor possible.
Obtained from two Sardinian varietals of fruit, the Semidana and Bosana, and created in traditions of Sardinia and without heat or chemicals, this olive oil first presents the crude olive taste with overtones of artichoke and finishes with a perfect balance of spice and bitterness.
Gourmet Sardinia's extra virgin olive oil can be used to enhance homemade vinaigrettes with its crude olive flavor, and is an excellent enhancement to finish a simple Spaghetti Pomodoro or Risotto with white mushrooms.
This olive oil is available in 500 and 250 ml bottles.
