A deep golden color tinged with green hues, our Antichi Uliveti Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sardegna is richly aromatic on the palate and has a clean, fresh mouthfeel. With an elegantly complex fragrance of wild herbs and freshly-cut grass, the 2023/2024 harvest has a long-lasting finish with a gentle spice and bitterness playing in great harmony. It has vegetal notes of artichoke, green almond, and cardoon. Only a small quantity of bottles are available every year, which makes this real extra virgin olive oil extremely precious. Antichi Uliveti is the perfect oil for dishes like seafood, but we'd settle for a plate and some good bread just to savor every drop.
Antichi Uliveti is made exclusively from Bosana olives, an endemic northern Sardinian cultivar that thrives in the harsh conditions of this region. The Pinna's olive groves are located in the province of Sassari at 840 ft of altitude. Inside their 2,000 acres, about 450 olive trees are more than a hundred-year-old!
The Pinna family has been producing its Antichi Uliveti EVOO for generations. They are 100% committed to protecting the pristine Sardinian environment, recycling byproducts like pomace, and using vegetation water as fertilizers. The olives are hand-picked between November and January, just when they start changing color. The Pinna family mill is just a mile away from their groves, so the olives are pressed within 6 hours from when they are harvested. This EVOO obtained with religious respect has finally received yet another significant recognition: the Slow Food Presidium.
