It is a golden yellow extra virgin olive oil, which opens to the nose with slightly fruity and herbaceous perceptions combined with hints of green apple peel. On the palate, the tone is sweet, enriched with notes of dried fruit and accompanied by a bitter and the slightly spicy finish.This olive oil is perfect raw, for flavoring meat and fish dishes with a delicate flavor.

For five generations, the Boeri family - historically nicknamed Roi - has dedicated itself to sharing the flavors of the Ligurian coast with extra virgin olive oil, pesto, and beyond. The family's story began in 1890 when Giuseppe Boeri rented a communal olive oil mill in Badalucco in the Argentina Valley of Liguria to process local Taggiasca olives using the traditional stone press. After years of work, he was able to finally purchase the mill. Today Franco Boeri and his son Paolo continue the tradition in the same family mill with that same stone press. Roi's Taggiasca olive groves are on traditionally narrow terraces about 1,150 feet above sea level, the olive trees enjoy a mild climate surrounded by Mediterranean scrubs, chestnut trees, and wild herbs. Thanks to the sea breezes and fragrant herbs, the air in Badalucco is wonderfully aromatic.
