Gerbino Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a blend of Nocellara del Belice & Biancolilla olives from our olive groves in the hillsides of Contessa Entellina, province of Palermo. The olive groves are carefully nurtured throughout the entire cultivation process by brothers Gunther & Klaus Di Giovanna, following strict organic methods.
Each year in early October, the olives are hand-picked each day, transported to the mill in small crates and cold pressed on the same harvest day to ensure that the olive oil preserves all of its healthful characteristics and freshness. The cold temperature and short milling time of 20 minutes extract much less oil but the finest quality. The olive oil is decanted in a steel tank, under nitrogen, and hand bottled without filtration.
The Gerbino olive oil is a medium intensity olive oil, pale green in color. Its distinct olive scent is complemented by complex aromas that hint of grasses, flowers, tomato leaf and artichoke. It is medium in body. It has a pleasant taste, elegant, balanced between mild and bitter-plant accents.
