By Le Due Benedette

Peragineto is organic olive oil that is spicy and fruity. It boasts an aroma full of vegetable notes, including tomatoes and artichokes. As an aftertaste, it has hints of bitterness due to polyphenols. Containing 80 percent Coratina and 20 percent Ogliarola olives, this year's edition is intense due to the drought. It's ideal for raw food.

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.
