Dr Michele Galantino produces this great extra virgin olive oil from his Estate in Trinitapoli in a special area called ‘Coppa Malva’ Dr Michele Galantino is the third generation tending the family olive groves and has become a mastro Oleario. He personally controls every phase of the production of this oil. The olives are harvested when they are in a perfect state of ripeness in October to November.

This olive grove is a mixture of Corantina, Ogliarola, Parazana, Leccino, Nocellara and Caroleo varieties of trees. The olives are gathered by hand and fall gently into ’hammocks’ where they are collected and taken as quickly as possible to the mill for milling and pressing.

The great stone olive mills crush the olives into a paste and a small percentage of oil (3-4%) spontaneously rises to the surface and is then skimmed off by hand. This is what goes into the Gran Cru Bottles and each one is numbered. There is only a limited number every year and in the 2009 harvest there is no more than 2500 litres. This affioramento method is considered to produce the very finest oil available.Italian Olive Oil ~ Olive Oil ~ Extra Virgin Italian Olive Oil ~ Bottled Italian Olive Oil ~ Oil ~ Olive ~ Olive Oils ~ Organic Olive Oil ~ L’Affiorato Gran Cru

Some would say that the region of Puglia (known to the English as Apuglia), the long strip of land that forms the heel of the Italian boot, is the home of Italian olive oil.

The L’Affiorato Gran Cru oil from Coppa Malva has a Golden Yellow colour with green reflections. It has an aroma of fresh grass, together with a hint of almond and  a delicate flowery note with hint of tomato leaves. It tastes delicately fruity, slightly bitter and spicy with delicate vegetable notes and a complex finish.                            

The region of Puglia produces more olives than anywhere else in the world. Their experience make this an outstanding oil. We are honoured to be able to offer this remarkable oil produced by Dr Galantino in the renowned affiorato method.
