Two great Apulian traditions – making olive oil and creating decorated vases – have come together in these Antico Frantoio Muraglia Jars. The company’s iconic jars are entirely hand-made by artisans in Apulia who deploy their skills in shaping the clay, kiln-firing and then painting the resulting vessels entirely by hand. Each one is unique.
The finest extra virgin olive oil is made exclusively from the prized coratina and peranzana varieties of olives, selected and processed using the traditional method of cold pressing. The olives are crushed between granite grindstones, grinding slowly to ensure a perfectly smooth and even paste which is then processed in our modern plant, working around the clock to extract an oil with very low acidity and of incomparable consistency, color, flavor and aroma.
Medium fruity: Oil that goes perfectly with delicate dishes; it boasts very low acidity and a very well-balanced taste, suitable for fish and lightly-cooked dishes. Medium-fruity green oil whose peppery flavor offers notes of artichoke and fennel.
