Rustichella d'Abruzzo

By Manicaretti Italian Food Importers

Savor aromas of sage and ripe tomato, pleasant bitterness, and a notable nuttiness that ends in a warm spicy finish. Rustichella d'Abruzzo is made from olives grown in the Vestine hills – located between the Apennines foothills and the Adriatic Sea – which are covered with centuries-old olive orchards. The farmland owned and managed by Gianluigi Peduzzi produces a bountiful quantity of olives, which are milled in a modern community Frantoio (olive mill), located a stone’s throw from the fields.
