Il Vulcino – An Amazing discovery. A wonder. An ancient extra virgin olive oil made with love by a wonderful couple living in a small village 100 km from Rome. Eugénie Grigolini is the face of the brand and a delight. The cultivars are Frantoio, Leccino and an Etruscan olive called Caninese. Think of a blend of local olives as an orchestra. Each instrument works in harmony, and togheter, they form a sound where the sum is greater than each individual. And each year the harvest delivers a varied product that is a result of fantastic weather, the superb care of the trees, and the skill of the miller. This product is organically grown. It is the goal of Eugénie to play classical music via speakers from her archives to the trees to encourage and support their wellbeing. The flavors are aboundantly fragrant, herb-like, and very central Italian, with a corresponding intensity of bitter and pungent finish.
