"LOLIO", Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The olive trees which produce Agropan’s LOLIO oil grow on large stretches of unspoilt land in a typically Mediterranean landscape. The oil is fragrant and well balanced, with a slightly grassy flavour and hints of tomato. It is extracted from the native cultivar "Nocellara del Belice" and is influenced by the Central Mediterranean micro-climate.
