The Suatoni family has been growing and pressing their own olive oil for generations. They cultivate more than 1000 olive trees without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Our olives are cultivated with the love and care that comes from lifetimes of experience.
Amelia Oil is made from a blend of Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and Rajo olives. The flavour varies subtly from year to year depending on the rainfall and temperatures during the growing season. Our oil has very low acidity, which is one of main criteria for a good extra virgin oil – Amelia Oil is around .08% which is well below .15%, the required level for extra virgin labeling standards.
At Amelia Oil we believe in fresh oil. We receive our oil from the Suatoni’s within weeks of it being pressed, usually in January. Olio nuovo is incredibly green and fresh. To ensure that you get the freshest oil possible each of our bottles bears the harvest date. We encourage our customers to order their oil at the beginning of the year when it is at it’s freshest, and to use it up within the calendar year like the Italians do. It will keep much longer if stored in a cool place away from light.
