Imagine an oil that makes any dish more virtuous, starting with the mainstays of Ligurian cuisine: from pesto to testaroli, from sardenaria to focaccia, from farinata to minestrone. And yes, even desserts, it’s time to break the taboo and give vent to creativity!
Done? And now that you can imagine the taste of ÖIE, imagine that in Liguria there is someone who every day guarantees an ethical management of the land, the plants, the work.
Well yes, that “someone” exists: it’s APOL, the association of olive growers behind every drop of ÖIE and every single olive, and who makes sure that they are good for all senses and also in all senses.
ÖIE is the result of our short supply chain with a double guarantee: the DOP Riviera Ligure certification and the ISO 22005:08 certification that make the origin and the path of ÖIE oil 100% transparent, from the plant to the packaging.
That’s why it’s good for everyone, including those who work with it.
You are in front of a heroic brand, that with its wide and generous mantle welcomes the olives of the whole territory and respects the production, the times, the vintages. ÖIE likes to change over time precisely because it follows nature.
If you look closely, in the packaging you will find the Ligurian soil, its windswept conformation, the passion of olive growers, the laborious but happy harvests and local processing.
We take care of the olives on the tree, we pick them at the right time and we work them immediately, because Ligurian olives can’t be kept waiting, they could get angry!
It conquers already from the golden yellow color with green reflections, while the smell is felt immediately, it is lightly fruity mostly ripe. If you close your eyes, you will find hints of artichoke and an aftertaste of almond, apple and aromatic herbs. Bitterness and pungency are well balanced, contained and harmonic.
It gives its best on seafood salads, steamed shellfish, grilled fish, baked white meats and fresh cheeses. Ideal for the preparation of Mesciùa, the typical soup of La Spezia cuisine, based on spelt and legumes.
