La Pizzicocca

By Le Due Benedette

This medium extra virgin olive oil results from the selection of Coratina olives from La Pizzicocca, one of our family's unique olive groves overlooking the sea. The influence of the terroir makes the strong flavor of the Coratina olives milder while preserving its organoleptic proprieties and diminishing the characteristic bitterness and spiciness.

About Le Due Benedette

For three generations, the Italian Desantis family has owned the same olive groves in the surroundings of Giovinazzo, a little town near Bari, Apulia. Grown in a rural area devoted to olive oil culture, the trees belonging to the producer's family are centuries old. Now the owner, named Benedetta, for her grandmother, uses only organic methods to obtain a simple and healthy nutritional product and preserve the gorgeous Apulian landscape.
