       H.S. Gold 'Essenza’ Organic - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our Gold 'Essenza' olive oil is a premium free-run oil known as ‘Affiorito’, that comes from trees which are a minimum of 60 years old. These trees have been heavily pruned to produce a limited quantity of exceptional fruit.

These ancient trees are located in a separate section of the olive grove and one can only describe this unique product, as the pure essence of olive oil; there has never been an oil of this calibre produced before.

By planting 60% Casaliva, 30% Leccino and 10% Pendolino olive varieties we have ensured Monte Castello has a unique quality characterised by its intense fruity flavour with a hint of pepper only found from the particular trees planted in this region of Italy.

The harvest for the Essenza is not pressed and is only produced from the free run juice and as such is only available in strictly limited quantities each year.
