Lucini Founders Reserve originates in the Tuscan hillside estate of the renowned Frantoio Franci. Here, each November, estate grown Frantoio and Olivastra Seggianese olives are picked by hand and crushed within twelve hours, capturing the full, wonderful flavor of the fresh olive fruit. The olives are treated with unmatched care during the crush to ensure the extracted oil contains all of its natural goodness – complexity of flavor and superior levels of antioxidants. This exquisite extra virgin olive oil has a naturally achieved free acidity of .1-.3%, far below the required .8%.
Each bottle of Founders Reserve is numbered. Only 5,000 bottles were produced this harvest.
This exceptional, robust oil is extremely complex yet perfectly balanced, both ample and harmonious with aromatic notes of artichoke, floral blossoms and spices and the classic peppery finish.
We recommend you use this flavorful oil to finish your favorite dishes. Ideal for beef and tuna carpaccio, earthy porcini mushrooms, roasted meats and mature cheeses. Also excellent over vegetable soups, green salads, medium-flavored fish, legumes, and bruschetta, or serve simply drizzled on warm ciabbatta.
