Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Vicopisano (Robust)Print This Page
Vicopisano is a classic Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, known for its hearty, peppery flavor. This is an olive oil to drizzle over steaks with a spritz of lemon or to garnish a hearty bean soup with a shower of Parmesan; it is not meant for delicate dishes like seafood and salads. For delicate dishes, try Pianogrillo extra virgin olive oil from Sicily.
The area near Pisa where Vicopisano’s organic frantoio olives are grown is a government-protected geographic zone of Tuscany, and the IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta) label guarantees that the olives are from this area (perhaps you heard of the scandal uncovered by The New Yorker that many Italian olive oils are not actually Italian?). Another reason to buy from Let There Be Bite’s trusted vendors!
