Exploring the World of Agrumato Olive Oil

We are thrilled to dive deeper into the ancient process of combining olives with exceptional ingredients during the crushing phase to create a unique oil we called Agrumato.

In this blog, we explore the essence of Agrumato olive oil, delve into the traditional Agrumato method, and uncover the intricacies of infusion.

The Essence of Agrumato Olive Oil

Agrumato olive oil is a harmonious blend of premium olives and natural ingredients. This unique process captures the vibrant flavours of fruits, herbs, or spices, infusing them into the olive oil during the milling process. The result is an exquisite blend that elevates any culinary creation, tantalising the taste buds with its layers of complexity and delightful aromas.

The Agrumato Method: Co-milling Perfection 

At the heart of Agrumato olive oil lies the traditional Agrumato method, originating from Italy. This technique involves co-milling the olives and the flavour source together, ensuring optimal integration of flavours.

The fruits or other flavour sources are typically gathered at the same time as the olives. They are then milled together in the same batch. The olives and the additional ingredients, such as citrus fruits or herbs, are simultaneously crushed and blended, allowing their flavours to infuse and meld during the milling process.

This co-milling technique ensures that the flavours from the fruits or herbs are thoroughly integrated with the olives, resulting in a harmonious blend of flavours within the olive oil. By combining the olives and flavour sources during the milling stage, the Agrumato method captures the essence and aromatic properties of the additional ingredients, creating a truly unique and flavourful olive oil.

The co-milling approach enables a more profound integration of flavours compared to other methods like simple infusion, as the ingredients undergo the milling process together from the start.
