Volcanic Tuscan Soil
- Our Tuscan olives grow on the extraordinarily rich sandstone soil of Monte Amiata which was once a volcano and is part of the terroir of Tuscan wine Brunello di Montalcino
Prodigious First Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Due to its exceptional purity and naturally elevated levels of polyphenols and antioxidants, Piro. will surprise you with a light and nearly effervescent texture and a splendid vivid green tone. Aroma is floral with hints of fresh herbs followed by the scent of green almond. On the palate, notes of grass and tomato leaf with a distinctive finish of black pepper.
This robust oil is both complex and wonderfully balanced. Piro. has remarkable stability and unmatched fluidity complimenting beautifully the sophistication of its flavors.
Piro. begins in our olive groves on Mount Amiata, above the vineyards where the prized Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced. The volcanic soil of this region, as well as its altitude, contribute to the favorable conditions under which our olives are grown. The early harvest of green, unripe fruit results in low yields of extra virgin olive oil with bold flavor and increased levels of antioxidants. Milled within hours of harvest, our oil is immediately filtered and stored under optimal conditions in oxygen-free, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks until it is bottled to order.
Carefully imported into the US under climate-controlled conditions exclusively by Olio Piro. LLC, each signature bottle Piro. will bring to your table and kitchen the same fresh extra virgin olive oil you can experience only in Italy.
Piro.'s health benefits were bestowed by the never-awarded-before 2018 Health ClaimPlatinum Honor at the London IOOC and Gold Quality Award in 2020. Piro. also received Gold Awards at the 2019 and 2020 World Competitions of New York and Japan. The 2021 edition of FLOS OLEI lists Piro. "Best in the World" in the Blended/Medium Fruitiness category.
