Mie Radici , Cerasuola EVOO ‘Olio del Contadino’ 750 ml bottle
Made from only the Cerasuola Olive- It is Extra Virgin, First Cold Press; No Other Olives, No Other Blend of Grade or Region: It is a wonderful “all around” extra virgin olive oil. Smooth at first and finishes with a pepper-like finish in the back of the throat.
