This great bundle showcases two of the Calogiuri family's finest offerings, their Affiorato Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and their most popular Vincotto, made with ripe Figs. Imported from Italy, these two staples of the Italian kitchen make a great gift for the gourmet in your life.
Affiorato Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Hand-picking and cold-pressing is the old family tradition of creating the oil. The specifics of the method is that the oil is extracted from the crushed olives through a method of the 'Affiorato' (surfacing). After the olive is crushed the oil rises to the surface detaching itself naturally from the water. Also don't be surprised that you may see some sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
Calogiuri's Affiorato Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a fresh and delicate taste and works well in many of your recipes.
Fig Vincotto: Vincotto is cooked wine and is derived from cooking the musts of Negroamaro and Malavasia grapes. The Fig Vincotto is crafted by the infusion of fig after the 3rd year of aging. The vincotto is aged in oak barrels for up to 4 years, creating a balance between sweet and sour flavors, of course hints of fig. The product does not contain any alcohol, colorants or preservatives.
