Calogiuri "Affiorato" Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Puglia, is made from an old traditional technique of the same name, 'affiorato'. Each November, after cold crushing the olives, the producer waits for the oil to surface (affiorare). The 'floating' oil is then skillfully collected in special jugs by hand, and then bottled. The olive tree is extremely resilient, yet the olive itself is very delicate, and the process called "affiorato" ensures minimal harm to the olives, while capturing the incredible flavor of the original fruit. This rich and dense extra virgin olive oil is a true delight to the senses, adding texture and silky flavor to any recipe. Nicely packaged in a box with a pouring cork, this also makes a lovely gift.
