This 100% extra virgin olive oil is intended as a finishing oil - drizzle it over meat, bread, vegetables or pasta to give the dish that extra touch of Italianesque perfection.
Grown, milled, and bottled locally, this oil illustrates why our town is rightfully named Los Olivos.
About Marianello Olive Oil
The Sanger Estate Vineyard and Olive Farm is the only olive grove in the United States exclusively planted to the Lucca variety. Our 1,700 trees are planted on 11 acres and have been producing high quality olives for more than a decade.
Bill and Jan Sanger first introduced the Marianello Lucca Extra Virgin Olive Oil in 2012 and have since then expanded the product line to include Marianello flavored oils and vinegars as well as a 25 year aged balsamic vinegar.
The Marianello name was chosen to honor Bill's maternal grandparents, Maria and Nello Ercolani and his Italian-American heritage.
"For friends who love to cook, slide a bottle of gourmet olive into a stocking or under the tree, suggests Holly Clegg, the author of six health-themed cookbooks, including "Eating Well to Fight Arthritis." One of her favorites, by the Sanger Family of Wines, is their 2014 Marianello 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil. "I always keep a bottle of good olive oil to use in vinaigrettes or with pasta, vegetables or bread," says Clegg, who likes that she's supporting a small businesses, too." Read more.
