Marco Rizzo Early Harvest
Early Harvest Organic EVOO
This is a special olive oil, and has been recognised as so when it was ranked among the top 5 oils at the 2016 edition of the “Olio Capitale” international competition. Nurturing ancient olive varieties, Marco has managed to return his grandparents olive grove to its former glory. With balanced and aromatic flavours, this meadow green olive oil has notes of green apple, raw tomato, and young lettuce. Followed by a soft bitterness and ending with the pleasant spice of ginger and white pepper. To be enjoyed with a classic bruschetta of tomatoes and garlic, a buffalo mozzarella salad or a recommendation from Marco himself – drizzled over beef tartare.
Marco Rizzo – Campania – Italy
Driven by a great love for his land, a Spartan work ethic and a holistic approach to organic farming, Marco restored the groves where weeds had literally invaded the trees of the native olive tree cultivars of Rotondella and Carpellese and the centuries-old Nostrale di Felitto, a variety that grows only in Cilento. The result is a true reflection of the ancient terroir. His philosophy is to create olive oil packed with polyphenols and nutrition and for this reason, he harvests the olives whilst they are still young and bursting with good stuff. This method requires more olives and more time but the result is outstanding.

I ordered the prosecco and the olive oil. The Olive oil is delicious and fresh there are some lovely earthy flavours. I can taste the love it was made with! The prosecco was smooth and subtle perfect for a warm afternoon. It complimented my roasted veggies in the garden! It is wonderful to know these products were sourced from small farms and are made by passionate people.
Thank you so much!!
Very impressive first couple of orders – the still Prosecco was exquisite & the oil and balsamic vinegar bring that feeling of Mediterranean sunshine to our Yorkshire table.
