Among the surprises of recent days for runners who choose to participate in the race on 5 June 2022 there is also a 100 ml can of extra virgin olive oil produced by Frantoio del Grevepesa.

The can will be in the race pack of the 45.6 km ultratrail and 21 km trail members.

The expert’s notes

It is a 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, of Tuscan origin harvested in 2021, with a light fruitiness, which then leaves room for a delicate bitterness that precedes a pleasant and never aggressive spicy.

It is excellent for Mediterranean cuisine, and for pairing with vegetable-based first courses, chickpea and yellow squash soups, on fish carpaccio, on classic tomato bruschetta but also on imaginative fruit salads.

Taste of oil: Fruity 2.5 / 5 Bitter 2/5 Spicy 3.5 / 5

Harvest: 100% Extra virgin olive oil obtained from olives harvested on the Chianti hills and pressed within the day. The harvested olives are stored in perforated crates of about 15-20 kg each or in 250-300 kg bins and transported within a short time from the companies to the Frantoio, where they are immediately defoliated, washed and sent for processing. The Frantoio del Grevepesa works in a continuous 2-phase cycle, i.e. without adding water during the extraction phase, and is equipped with 2 extraction systems.

Conservation: 18 months. In a cool and dry place. Between 15 ° -16 °. Protected from light and heat sources. After each use, remember to replace the cap immediately.

Oxygen is the worst enemy of oil.
