Galantino Basil Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is infused with exquisite natural basil. This wonderfully flavored oil comes to us from the heel of the boot, Puglia.
Basilico (basil) brings the flavors of summer to anything you make. We recommend this with pasta, grilled fish or chicken. It adds even more flavor to pesto. Add to tomatoes and cheese, or even pizza.
Recommended for sauces, bruschetta, pasta, pizza, caprese salad, mozzarella and tomatoes.
Ingredients: Extra virgin olive oil (99%), basil (1%)
250 ml/8.4 oz
The Galantino family acquired the “La Fenice” estate, which comprised 47 hectares of olive groves, providing for as far as the eye can see, a green expanse of over 15.000 Ogliarola and Coratina olive trees.
The olives are harvested from 15th October to 31st December, when they are at perfect stage of ripeness, following the time-honoured technique of hand gathering by shaking the branches of the olive trees so that the olives fall gently onto canvas “hammocks”. Witness to the quality of the olives is the care taken in yearly pruning, drip-irrigation, and ultra-modern detection techniques for monitoring the crop for pest control, thus reducing the use of phytopesticides to an absolute minimum. The result is a fine quality Extra virgin Olive Oil that has the very best organoleptic properties.
