Costa dei Rosmarini Santa Chiara 100% Ligurian Extra Virgin Olive Oil: A Taste of Italian Excellence

Ligurian Liquid Gold: The Costa dei Rosmarini Santa Chiara 100% Ligurian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a luxurious embodiment of the Italian Riviera's rich culinary heritage. Crafted predominantly from the revered Taggiasca olives, known for their superior quality, this oil is a testament to the meticulous care and tradition of Ligurian olive growing. Harvested by hand when partially ripe, these olives yield an oil with a remarkably low .3% oleic acid content, ensuring a purity and quality that is rare and highly prized.

A Symphony of Flavors: This exquisite oil is distinguished by its delicate fruity taste and a subtly peppery finish. Surprisingly devoid of bitterness, it can elevate a dish from simple to sublime. Encased in gold paper to protect it from light and preserve its freshness, this oil is best enjoyed raw, drizzled over salads, fresh fish, grilled meats, or carpaccio. It is not just an ingredient; it's a finishing touch that can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
