Affiorato Extra Virgin Olive Oil is obtained using the centuries-old method of hand-skimming the small quantity (2-3%) of olive oil that naturally rises to the surface of the olive paste after milling but before undergoing cold-pressing and centrifugal separation. The olives are crushed with no additional production process. Affiorato extra virgin olive oil is full-bodied and perfectly balanced in taste and fragrance.
Discover the passion of the Galantino Family, a family that has been masters of olive oil since 1926. They only select the best olives from their groves near Bari (Apulia), near the Adriatic cost, a region that produces more olives than anywhere else in the world. Even today, in this era of automation, all of Galantino’s Ogliarola and Coratina olives are hand-harvested the traditional way, by shaking the branches of the olive trees so that the olives fall gently onto canvas traps. In another nod to tradition, Galantino mills their olives with traditional granite millstones. Through cold extraction and strict quality testing, Galantino ensures that their extra virgin olive oil is consistently the best. With artistic packaging and fresh and smooth qualities, Galantino oils have won the most important international awards and accolades.
