This extra virgin olive oil is made by cold-pressing Coratina olives together with ripe organic Italian hot peppers. This is the secret behind its unique taste, impossible to achieve with other methods such as flavouring or infusing.
Saverio Guglielmi's mill was founded by his grandfather in 1954 and passed on to his father and his uncle, until Saverio himself learned to craft his own olive oils. Today, the family business grows Puglian olive trees on an estate comprising over 170 hectares. It also uses new olive varieties to produce exceptional quality oils with distinctive aromatic notes.

Unlike wine, olive oil does not improve with age. It begins to alter as soon as it is produced and can become completely oxidized in just a few months if it is not stored in ideal conditions. It needs to be consumed rapidly for its full benefits to be enjoyed. To get the freshest oil on the market, choose one from the latest harvest, in a dark glass bottle. Avoid keeping the oil on the counter, exposed to light, and near the stove or other heat sources. Instead, store it in a cool, dry place. Close the bottle tightly after use to avoid exposing the oil to air, and consume within three months of opening.
