Our olive oil

Rastrello ("hand rake" in Italian) is a cold-extracted, extra-virgin olive oil made from olives harvested by hand on our family-run farm in Umbria, Italy. Our grove is made up of 900 trees, most of which are more than 400 years old. We grow and blend four known olive varieties, which add distinctive flavors and aromas: frantoio, for fragrance; leccino for peppery spice; moraiolo for bitterness; and pendolino for earthy smoothness. We focus on improving quality by deep pruning to provide equal sunlight and oxygen to every branch; commence picking at the beginning of the harvest period when flavors are richer; and milling each batch the same day as picked to avoid our olives breaking down. This leads to optimal quality with richer flavors and aromas. Olive oil is known for its many antioxidants, reducing inflammation and for being good for your heart. To find an olive oil that has those benefits, as well as a high quality flavor and aroma, is something special. If you are interested in purchasing, please email at: lydia@ilrastrello.com
