Organic extra virgin olive oil Antonacci

From our fields to your table
Frantoio Antonacci, in the area of San Giovanni Rotondo (FG), is located at the foot of the Gargano in an area where the hot and dry climate, the subtle variations in temperature and the perfect amount of rainfall – with the highest levels seen during the autumn-winter period and the lowest during the summer – encourage the spread of the cultivation of olive trees and the production of an organic extra virgin olive oil that is amongst the most popular in the world thanks to its unique and excellent organoleptic, nutritional and health-giving qualities.

The particular microclimatic situation also blocks the development of the biological cycle of the damaging olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae), making the “Matine” area (as the area of land home to the olive groves that provide Antonacci oil is known) particularly suitable for organic farming, which entirely forbids the use of synthetic chemicals (fertilisers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pesticides in general) and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
The main cultivars in our region are “CORATINA”, “PERANZANA” and “OGLIAROLA GARGANICA”.

MONOCULTIVAR

Organic extra virgin olive oil

Ogliarola

Ogliarola Garganica is an endemic cultivar typical of the flat land on the slopes of the Gargano whose fruits ripen quickly, providing a delicate oil with a lightly fruity flavour.
On the palate, you can perceive a pleasant softness, with light and balanced notes of bitterness and spice, all well-proportioned so as to remain harmonious. This oil is perfect for anyone looking for a delicate dressing that is not too strong, yet at the same time aromatic and flavoursome.

Peranzana

The Peranzana olive produces a high-quality extra virgin oil as it offers all the nuances that distinguish a prized oil.
This oil presents very low levels of acidity, a very intense bouquet and a rich flavour that stimulates and heightens the perception of the taste of the dishes it is used on.

Medium-fruity with hints of grass redolent of artichoke and green tomato, it has a balanced and delicate flavour, a light bitterness with a pleasant almond aroma.

Coratina

The oil that comes from the pressing of this olive is very intense and fruity, with notes of grass or leaves with low levels of peroxides and acidity (<0.2%); it presents a yellow-green colour, with a lightly bitter flavour due to the high concentration of oleuropein and typically spicy due to the high levels of polyphenols.

The coratina olive is slow to ripen and is largely processed when it is still green; in this way, it retains and always offers a fresh and fruity bouquet, similar to green apple, thereby satisfying even the most expert and refined palates.

EXTRABIO

Organic extra virgin olive oil
ExtraBIO Antonacci is an organic extra virgin olive oil with a lightly fruity flavour and golden-yellow colour with definite notes of bitterness and spice which, however, take a back seat to the delicacy lent by the careful selection of olives exclusively from Gargano.

It leaves hints of freshly-mown grass and ripe tomato on the palate. Its fruitiness and almond notes make it perfect for those who love an oil with a strong character, yet not excessively so.

IL CLASSICO

Extra virgin olive oil, 100% italian
“CLASSICO” Antonacci is an extra virgin olive oil (not organic) with a lightly fruity flavour and golden-yellow colour with a sweet taste and with balanced notes of bitterness and spice.

This oil is a balanced blend (mostly Ogliarola Garganica) and is perfect for anyone looking for a delicate dressing that is not too strong, yet at the same time aromatic and flavoursome.
