Oil type : Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Certified organic olive oils use organically grown olives and meet organic production standards for their region. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

Cultivars : Frantoio

There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

Intensity : Medium

Intensity correlates to the amount of bitterness and/or pungency experienced when consuming an extra virgin olive oil. An olive oil with little bitterness that creates little to no sensation in the back of the throat is considered mild. A very bitter olive oil that causes a slight burning or spicy sensation in the mouth and throat is robust. We rate intensity between 5 values: Mild, Medium, Medium Robust, Robust and Extreme.

Harvest Date : Fall 2021

As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.


A classic Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, this Tuscano IGP from Vignoli Food, is a delightful example. Claudio Vignoli, the master miller and olive oil sommelier behind the brand. He is the creator of this olive oil and has extensive experience in the olive oil industry. He sources the best olives he can find to create his oils and mills them himself. Focused on quality above all else, this oil speaks for itself. Full flavoured and well rounded, it is very well-balanced and not overly intense, even though it is 100% Frantoio olives. This variety tends to be quite bitter and bold. The bright arugula and bitter kale notes are present in this oil, alongside rosemary, and fresh herbs. The finish is warm, and spicy and lingers beautifully in the mouth.

This Tuscano IGP is also a certified nutriceutical and contains the EU’s health claim right on the bottle. An extra virgin olive oil can support this health claim if it has more than 250mg/kg of polyphenols, the healthy antioxidants found in olive oil, as well as at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol (another antioxidant) and its derivatives per 20 g. This Vignoli Food Tuscano meets these requirements and it is proudly shared on the bottle.

The soffrito method of cooking with extra virgin olive oil also enhances the health benefits, according to this study done at the University of Barcelona! This Tuscano IGP is delicious paired with grilled meats, and chicken. It’s also delicious with fresh salads and roasted vegetables like this Kale and Roasted Winter Vegetable salad.
