2 Citrus-Flavoured Olive Oils, Blood Orange and Zesty Lemon made according to the “Agrumato” method. This involves crushing the olives and fruit together, thereby producing a harmoniously integrated product and preserving the freshness, health and flavour characteristics of both components.
Intenso: Intensely fruity, made from Nocellara del Belice. Aromas of artichokes, roasted tomato, celery and herbs.
Forte: Showcase for the modern Favolosa (FS17) variety. Fresh grassy aromas, medium to strong flavours and piquant pepperiness.
Mezzo: Medium fruity with aromas of green herbs, roasted vegetables, tomatoes and green banana. A lingering spiciness and nutty aftertaste.
Delicate: Delicately fruity. A sweet, nutty aroma with hints of apple, green banana and avocado. A subtly piquant aftertaste.
History & Culture
Andante Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from olives grown on the Wêreldsgeluk Estate near Porterville. Cultivation, harvest timing and milling are directed at producing the finest quality EVOO with a focus on complex, harmonious flavours and maximising biophenols for their extraordinary health benefits. Farming practices are ethical, sustainable and natural. A modern two-phase mill is used for cold-extraction and no artificial additives are used. The first trees were planted in March 2006 and today we have 36 hectares, about 36,000 trees (7 cultivars) under cultivation in an intensive system.
