Located in central Italy between the Apennines and the Adriatic lies the Marche region of Italy. This region is home to the Ascolano olive, also grown in northern California. A lesser-known varietal than its Tuscan counterparts, the Ascolano embraces "il Mezzo" - the Middle - in many ways, it has origins in central Italy, along with a middle flavor profile and medium volume of yield, making it a wonderful offering for the home table. Don't want to go too mild or too bold? Try the "middle"! There you will find a delicate profile with peach, apricot, tropical fruit and a mildly grassy flavor profile, with just a hint of pungency, perfect for all your dishes. 

Ascolano is heavenly over spaghetti and angel hair pasta and delicious with Bruschetta or Crostini.  The medium fruitiness and light body of Ascolano works well with grilled fish, chicken, or vegetables.  Try it with crusty bread, seasonings and Parmesan cheese.  Blend with our white and red vinegar bottles. We especially like this oil with our Peach White Balsamic!
