GranFruttato

Extra virgin par excellence

Characteristics:

It is the highest expression of Monini oil.


For GranFruttato, Zefferino Monini only selects oils from olives harvested slightly earlier, slightly unripe, from which a lower percentage of oil is extracted, but is very rich in antioxidants (polyphenols) that provide stability and enhance the vitality of perfume and fragrances.

Perfect for flavouring any type of soup, grilled meats, salads and vegetables with vinaigrette; truly delicious on bruschetta.
