The DOP Riviera Ligure di Levante from Lucchi & Guastalli is obtained from a carefully handpicked selection of Razzola, Lavagnina and Pignola olives that grow in the Ligurian part of the lower Lunigiana, a territory straddling Liguria and Toscana. The DOP Riviera Ligure di Levante is less sweet and floral compared to the other DOP Riviera Ligure dei Fiori. The aroma has a scent of mature fruit, artichoke, almond and aromatic herbs. On the palate, this extra virgin olive oil has an intense sweet tone together with spicy and bitter mild feeling.
It is perfect with bread, bruschetta, egg pasta, pesto, salads, shellfish and baked fish.
