Extra Virgin Olive Oil 99%, Basil 1%
A rare oil made from olives and basil leaves. An entirely natural product obtained in Puglia in the South of Italy. Basil brings all its aromatic freshness and strength to olive oil. In Puglia region, the brilliant green answers to the grey green: basil grows up to olive trees foot. To make the basil olive oil, from September the mill master gathers bunches of fresh basil, fills stainless steel tanks with, before pouring olive oil. It is maceration. The second step occurs during the olive harvest period, in November. Basil and olives are gathered in the same time and pressed together with millstone. The mix of both preparations gives to basil olive oil this perfect balance of freshness and power for a pasta dish, a simple tomato or a basil olive oil sorbet.
