What is the difference between our Classico and Riserva, and why is Libellula so high in polyphenols and antioxidants?

Polyphenols are what make extra virgin olive oil rich in antioxidants and nutrients. They protect against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, skin aging, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Typical extra virgin olive oil contains about 100mg/kg of polyphenols... but what about Libellula?

Our Classico olives are pressed in November, much earlier than the big distributors.

While we are able to press less extra virgin olive oil from the small olives, they have a more concentrated level of nutrients and a polyphenol count of between 350 to 400 mg/kg.

Flavor Notes: floral & peppery with undertones of apple & artichoke.

Our Riserva’s olives are harvested in early to mid-October.

The olives’ concentration of polyphenols and antioxidants are at their height, between 500 and 600 mg/kg.

But as the Riserva olives are even smaller than the Classico, we can only extract a tiny amount of antioxidant-rich olive oil. This is why our quantity of our Riserva is limited each year.

Flavor Notes: bright, herbaceous, spicy, with undertones of walnut.

Both the Classico and Riserva are made through regenerative agriculture (100% natural, pesticide-free), harvested by hand, and cold-pressed within twenty-four hours, ensuring none of the olive oil's antioxidants or vitamins are lost.

Each Farmer's Box supports Sabina's independent farmers and their shift to sustainable farming methods. You are helping to ensure one of Italy's oldest olive oil communities continues to thrive while savoring some of the Mediterranean's most exquisite olive oil!

Libellula is 3-6 times higher in polyphenols and antioxidants than typical extra virgin olive oil: Our Classico is 3-4x higher and the Riserva is 5-6x higher. 

Classico Flavor Notes: floral, peppery, with undertones of apple & artichoke. Your go-to olive oil for salads, fish, daily cooking & hors d'oeuvres.

Riserva Flavor Notes: bright, herbaceous, spicy, with undertones of walnut. Perfect for bruschetta, soups, and red meat.

    Best virgin olive oil - bar none!

    We have been Libellula customers from its inception. The olive oil is exceptional and consistently so. The fact that is sustainably grown and harvested, and supports local Italian growers and reclaimed olive tree groves makes the olive oil a winner all around. We adopted a tree in honor of my grandfather who was born in Italy. Our family and friends have raved about The Farmer’s Olive Oil Boxes we have gifted during the past two holiday seasons, often resulting in their being ongoing customers.

    Beautifully packaged, wonderfully sustainable, so personal

    While the olive oil itself is so tasty, it is so personal when you receive it. You open your package to find this handcrafted wooden crate -- you wonder is it wine? No, even better! It's olive oil. Then you see the very artful card with story of the vineyard that makes you want to taste the olive oil right away. Then you see the beautifully handwritten note from the sender (optional) with a wax seal, and you think what an amazing personal touch. The labels on the bottles make you want to display them on your counter, and the pour spouts are such a nice touch. After you receive this the first time, it will be a go to gift for others.
