La Badia Extra Virgin Olive Oil (LAZIO) - 34 oz
La Badia is produced completely with ripe itrana, frantoio and leccino olives, picked between January and February. The result is an oil in which the herbaceous and fruity flavor gives way to a more agreeable aftertaste. Perfect for seasoning any dish, it is recommended for the preparation of sauces, as in the best Italian culinary tradition.
Newlyweds Neno and Nena Agnoni bought a farm in the hills outside Cori in Lazio, the central Italian region that is home to Rome, in the early 1960's. Today, the family-owned company is still guided by their values: respect for the land and its rhythms, simple, all-natural products, and traditional flavors. Agnoni specializes in preserved vegetables and jams of all kinds made according to decades-old family recipes, especially the artichokes that are a specialty of their home region.
