The fruits of the Italian olive trees used to produce Levante Extra Virgin Olive Oil, are harvested after they properly grow under the sun and give a round, fresh and gentle flavour to every dish. Levante Olive Oil is rooted in tradition, but is now produced using the most advanced techniques in this field.
With its gentle scent and typical gold-yellow colour, it is the perfect choice for any kind of cooking: particularly appropriate for crispy fried dishes, it is also quite versatile for any kind of cooking and can be used to flavour salads, sauces, meat, legumes and vegetables.
The olive-production company Levante was founded in 1902, when the Cassetta family started the olive pressing activities in Andria, Puglia, Italy where it is known as one of the best climates for olives. Levante is one of few companies which can count on the entire olive oil manufacturing process, from cultivation to packaging of the product, through harvest and production. Levante Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced with coratina and other olives. The coratina olive is rich in polyphenols which gives the oil a strong and decisive taste, and fresh olive aroma, as well as a spicy and bitter aftertaste, reminiscent of almonds.
