Aristoleo promises you the quality of extra virgin olive oil, high in polyphenols that you expect and deserve. We select only brands we know personally from producers who follow the most stringent methods to assure excellence and client satisfaction.
The Governor from Corfu Island is a rare, award winning, extra virgin olive oil, with distinct character. Produced drop by drop with painstaking care, this first batch of limited edition, early-harvest fresh olive juice is high in phenolic compounds and full of concentrated goodness.
Three generations of Dafnis family members tend the aged ‘Lianolia’ variety olive trees in the family grove, none of which is under 100 years old. Many of the trees have been flourishing for over 500 years on the fertile slopes leading down and to the Adriatic Sea. Careful harvesting in October produces a low yield per tree of exceptionally high quality olives. Same-day cold pressing using the gentlest methods treats nature’s generosity with respect.
In return, Nature rewards us with a superb, unfiltered olive oil with the aroma of freshly-harvested and pressed olives, emerald green colour, rich texture and unique peppery taste. All are indications of its unusually high polyphenol content, which is what gives olive oil its healthy benefits. Add a new and finer taste dimension to salads or drizzle over warm food just before serving.
NOTE: The character of high phenolic olive oil can be peppery in the throat and bitter on the tongue. THIS IS NOT A DEFECT but is the indication of the presence of oleocanthal and oleacein, the phenolic compounds most researched for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties respectively.
