Get a taste of the best extra virgin olive oil in the world with this Riserva from Marfuga. From the protected region of Colli Assisi-Spoleto in Umbria, recognized with DOP certification as the home of uniquely delicious olive oils, this award-winning oil is a stunningly flavorful, herbaceous elixir that will transform even the simplest of meals.

Moraiolo and frantoio olives are picked by hand on the Marfuga estate. Two of the most prized varieties in Umbria, moraiolo olives bring an intense fruitiness and notes of artichokes and herbs, while frantoio balances it out with a rich, buttery structure and grassy green aromas. They are pressed within a few hours of harvest to capture all of their fresh flavors for this best-of-the-best riserva oil, which was awarded the top prize at the FLOS OLEI international competition in 2021.

Since 1817, the Gradassi family have been making olive oil at the foot of the Marfuga hills from which this artisan olive oil gets its name. Their estate in the Spoleto valley is some of the most fertile land in the central Italian region of Umbria and is home to more than 12,000 olive trees, many of which are over a century old. The family-run company is driven by a dedication to the art and tradition of olive oil, a connection to the land, and a commitment to quality above all else.
This olive oil has a fresh and herbaceous aroma, with dominant notes of artichoke and thistle. Its balanced bitter and spicy notes give way to a deliciously complex vegetal flavor, with a mild finish of green almond. It should be used as a finishing oil only; try drizzling it on a velvety soup, Caprese salad, charred bistecca, or simply cooked whole fish. It pairs wonderfully with fresh cheeses, where its full aromatic profile comes into focus.
