A premium extra virgin olive oil for your list
Thanks to Les Dames d’Escoffier I came to know the premium extra virgin Olio Piro olive oil from Tuscany. The small dark glass bottle right away said to me I would find a precious treat, and so I did. The 100% Italian 2020 blend is featured in the highly regarded FLOS OLEI guide as 2021’s Best in the World in the blended/medium fruitiness category. Its aroma conjures up fresh herbs; on the palate there are notes of grass and tomato leaf with hints of black pepper.
