Production Notes: The most prized olive oil is the cold pressed extra virgin olive oil which contains less than 1% acidity. The process of cold pressing guarantees the oil undergoes no chemical process and preserves the original flavor. La Suppressa is obtained from 100% Italian organic olives solely by mechanical means, available in 0.5 liter bottles or 3 liter cans.
Tasting Notes: This oil is quite delicate. Notes and flavors include cut grass, ripe green olives and pine nuts. There is absolutely no bitterness on the palate, with a slight hint of spiciness on the finish. Perfect for raw vegetables, mild salads, fish, and pesto.
Restore Liguria's Olive Groves: One of the Isola di Borgonovo cooperative's fundamental objectives is to protect the rural territory by promoting and restoring the abandoned hazelnut and olive groves built on the slopes of the Ligurian hills. They have already restored an olive grove that was abandoned for 10 years in Lavagna. They receive many requests to manage olive groves in the Tigullio region. With scarce financial aid, they have created the "adopt an olive tree" initiative. Now anyone can contribute to the enhancement of the Ligurian land and genuineness of its products.
