June 01 18:01 2017

GREENWICH, CT – 1 Jun, 2017 – This Father’s Day consider gifting Gourmet Living’s 2016 extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany, Italy. This superb Italian olive oil blend consists of the three traditioanl olive varieties of Tuscany: Frantoio (50%), Moraiolo (30%) and Leccino (approximately 20%).

Leading into Father’s Day, buyers can purchase this authentic Tuscan EVOO blend on Amazon.com for just $23.50 or 20% off its normal retail price of $29.50 for a 500 ml bottle. Free shipping for all Amazon Prime members. 

Harvested in 2016 from the rolling hills of Tuscany just south of Florence, this IGP certified extra virgin olive oil is currently sold on Amazon and the Gourmet Living website.

Says co-owner Sheila May, “sample an authentic extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany at a greatly discounted price.  We watched the olive-pressing last fall and are thrilled at the quality of the olive oil.  In our experience, many companies purposely mislabel their products and often use inferior blends of oils of uncertain age and origin.”

All of the 3 varieties of olives used in this olive oil are hand-picked in the morning and crushed in the afternoon to extract the highest quality of oil and the maximum level of freshness and antioxidant compounds. Olives are generally harvested in Tuscany between the 15th of October and the 20th of November. Green or half-colored olives tend to have the best combination of aroma and color.

While ripe olive tend to produce a higher yield of oil, its aroma and quality tends to suffer when compared to “younger” olives that have not matured on the tree. In general, 100 kilos of olives, produces 12 kilos of olive oil.

The olives are crushed at a temperature below 27ºC (81ºF), a process which lasts about 40 minutes. The oils used for Gourmet Living’s blend are cold-extracted in a very modern olive oil mill. For frequently asked questions about olive oil visit the Gourmet Living website. 

Tuscan olives are usually small and production per tree is quite low when compared to the south of Italy and Spain. Typically, olive oil production is about one liter per tree per year. This is why the flavor is very concentrated and intense and the oil is so pleasant.

A fine Tuscan EVOO is generally used to flavor salads, pasta and fresh and roasted vegetables. This well-balanced and tasty olive oil complements the flavors of the food without overpowering the natural ingredients.

Gourmet Living’s extra virgin olive oil was harvested in late 2016 and will easily last through March, 2019 if unopened. Once olive oil is opened and exposed to the elements, it should be consumed within 6 months and, most certainly, within one year. 

During this special promotion, one may purchase Gourmet Living’s Tuscan extra virgin olive oil for $23.50 or 20% off of its normal retail price of $29.50. FREE Shipping is available for members of Amazon prime.
