An exceptional extra virgin olive oil guaranteed to exalt any pasta or salad to divine levels.
Organic winery Schola Sarmenti is also blessed with open groves of beautiful, ancient olive trees, huge scultures punctuating the landscape of the organic Salento estate that date back thousands of years. Their massive, gnarly trunks and branches stand like amazing living statues, in the summer teeming with golden, precious drops of fruit and producing the most incredible scents and flavours of Salento. The olives are all picked by hand directly from the trees, the very best of which find their way into the extra virgin oil.
