Pieropan Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml

Tasting olive oil is new to me and the guidance of Matt and Trembles was essential. Pieropan's oil stood out for it's amazing perfume, beautiful balance & clean finish. A sensational mid-weight EVOO!

The Pieropan’s extra-virgin olive oil is made from estate-grown olives close to the Soave and Cellore d’Illasi vineyards. Made from Valpolicella DOP olives, with a majority of Grignano and Leccio varieties, it is characteristically delicate and fine and marries perfectly with fresh, natural dishes.

Not only are Pieropan’s wines sensational, their oil is something special too!
