What is EVOO?

Olive oil is classified in several retail grades: "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" (EVOO), "virgin olive oil", "pure olive oil", "olive oil", "pomace olive oil", "lampante olive oil", "refined olive oil". EVOO is the highest possible grade of olive oil. According to the International Olive Oil Council, the most important international organization to set olive oil standards, to be “extra virgin” an olive oil must derive 100% from olives, must have no more than 0.8% acidity, and must have no defects.


What are the differences between the Classico and Riserva Olive Oils?

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

Both the Classico and Riserva are 100% organic, made using regenerative agriculture, harvested by hand, and cold-pressed. The olives are pressed within twenty-four hours, preserving the olives, ensuring none of the olive oil's antioxidants or vitamins are lost.

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.

How long does Libellula EVOO last?

We recommend enjoyed Libellula EVOO within two years of purchase. While our olive oil can be safely consumed long after this period of time, enjoying it within two years ensures optimal flavor and aroma.


How should I store my Libellula EVOO?

Libellula EVOO should be stored between 57˚F - 64˚F (14˚- 18˚C) away from sunlight. Make sure that the cap is always closed tightly, preventing excess exposure to oxygen. Our dark colored glass bottles and tins have been designed to protect your olive oil from sunlight, which can significantly reduce olive oil's antioxidants.


Is Libellula EVOO vegan or gluten free? 

Yes, Libellula EVOO is vegan and gluten free. 

Please note, however, that Libellula EVOO may have come in contact with equipment that also handles items containing gluten or dairy products.
