A powerful, golden green oil perfect for pairing with meat dishes and dark chocolate cakes
Named after grandpa Atilio, who loved, you guessed it, meat, this is the strongest oil the Chiavalon brothers make. Rich in notes of artichoke and chicory, together with rosemary and mint, it has a strong black pepper and almond flavor.
How to enjoy it
This oil pairs perfectly with all kind of meat dishes. We especially recommend it with steaks. It may also be served with dessert, preferably a dark chocolate cake.
Who makes it
The Chiavalon brothers from the town of Vodnjan in Istria, where they've made a name for themselves and won more awards than we can count.
