Grown on the Tuscan hillside, Lucini Extra Virgin Olive Oil delivers the full-bodied taste of olive oil estate-harvested by true aficionados. Ideal for use with recipes or as a pairing with bread, this olive oil exhibits a traditional Tuscan-tasting profile. The flavor begins green and robust, then finales with a peppery kick.
The excellence of Lucini Italia olives begins in the soil. All Lucini Italia olives are grown 300 to 500 meters above sea level, where the soil and microclimate are optimum for cultivation, on premium olive trees that date back more than 100 years. The olives are nurtured to maturity by the sunny Italian climate under the expert care of Lucini Italia farmers, then hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. Pressed and prepared in small batches, these olives produce oil with authentic, exceptional flavor.
Naturally Extra Virgin with Ultra-Low Acidity
The phrase "extra virgin" is chemical term that actually does not assure quality. In fact, any olive oil meeting a chemical requirement of less than 0.8-percent acidity can be given the extra virgin label, though many of these olive oils reach low acidity by unnatural processes.
Lucini Italia is proud to naturally produce extra virgin olive oils at 0.2 to 0.4-percent acidity--that's less than half the acidity of typical extra virgins. The pure, ultra-low acidity of Lucini Italia olives is a result of the company's hand-picked, small-batch method.
