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.

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

Your go-to olive oil for salads, fish, daily cooking & hors d'oeuvres.


Our Classico Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from olives of the Leccino variety from our autumn 2023 harvest.

We harvest the olives in November, when they have reached peak ripeness, and then press them within 24 hours. In this way, none of the oil's antioxidants, vitamins, and other unique properties are lost.

And thanks to the “cold pressing” production process, the acidity level is maintained between 0.6 and 0.8%, ensuring a smooth profile and texture.

Libellula Classico 375 ml

Love this product! Worth the extra money to support olive groves and to have a quality product.

Katie Hitchcock-Smith
Feels like cooking in Italy

I had the pleasure of visiting the olive grove in the heart of Italy and brought a bottle with me back to the states — it has an incredible and unique flavor which elevates all my dishes. Makes me miss the Italian hills and sun, though the oil itself tastes like I never left. Anyone who wants to take their cooking to the next level should be first in line to buy this product, you won’t regret it!
