FUSED / AGRUMATO
First, a little history... from the time we began making agrumato olive oil (aka "fused" olive oil) decades ago, we needed a word that best described our mill’s process of crushing whole, fresh, organic olives together with perfectly ripe, fresh produce, strictly using cold mechanical extraction. We chose to use the word "fused" because the only other word that existed to describe this unique, artisan process was the Italian term, "agrumato". At the time, we felt the term "agrumato" was too obscure, so we chose to call our agrumato olive oil "fused".
The process of making agrumato is incredibly difficult, costly, and therefore incredibly rare. It's time consuming, laborious, and requires a near perfect choreography between farmers to bring fresh, ripe, locally sourced produce to the mill the moment the olives are ready to be harvested. We're talking mere hours from harvest to crush for both olives and fresh produce at our mill.
Furthermore, a recipe must be developed dictating how many tons of fresh herbs, fruit, or vegetables should be crushed with a specific ratio of olives. This process of formulation can take many seasons to perfect. We had many failures along the way before we got each agrumato olive oil right.
The process of agrumato is a labor of love which requires a level of craftsmanship and dedication to quality that we hang our hats on. We're known globally for having one of the largest collections of authentic, high quality agrumato olive oil.
