Our Gran Cru Affiorato is an extra virgin olive oil of excellent quality, obtained exclusively from olives harvested on the estate of the Galantino family and produced under the careful supervision of Gianvito Galantino.  This olive oil is produced following the ancient method of skimming which consists of collecting, by hand, a very small percentage of oil (about 2-3%) which is formed spontaneously on the olive paste before pressing. Each year only a limited number of 5,000 numbered bottles are produced, making it an exceptional extra virgin olive oil to be shared with family and friends!
