L'acropoli di Puglia Olive Oil
Founded in the late 19th century, L’Acropoli di Puglia has earned an unparalleled reputation of excellence.  Maintaining the integrity of the family’s four generations of tradition, L’ Acropoli di Puglia preserves the procedure of the harvest, production, and in particular, the technique of conserving the extra virgin olive oil in cisterns hewn from calcified rock.  The success of L’Acropoli di Puglia continues from its founding principles of excellence in production and passion for offering only the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

The Martinese Area

The city of Martina Franca stands at the pinnacle of the hills of Murgia in the heart of Puglia; a region renowned for its beautiful landscape and land of iridescent colors.  In many ways Martina Franca has not changed with the passing of time and has remained true to its second name as the “Acropolis of Puglia”, earned from its reputation as the region’s epicenter of art, culture, tradition and prosperity.

Puglia’s temperate climate is ideal for the growth and cultivation of Mediterranean flora, specifically the olive tree. The region uniquely offers olive growers what is known as the necessary “Five “S’s” for successfully farming: silence, solitude, dry spells, sun and stones.

                                       Mosto

This oil is derived from hand picked "coratina" olives that are harvested whole and fresh at the time of maturation. The olives are immediately transferred to the mill-stone where they are ground and slowly cold pressed. After the processes of settlement, maturation and refinement, the extra virgin olive oil "Mosto" is born. Mosto, translating to "must" is L'Acropoli di Puglia's  unfiltered oil resulting from the first"raw press".
It is high in the antioxident polyphenpol, and boasts a low percentage of oleic acis with an ideal balance of linolenic and linolenic acids.

Taste: Herbaceous and pleasantly bitter.

Gastronomic Combination: Fresh grass flavor indicated above for all season cuisine; try over grilled vegetables, superlative raw - uncooked.

                                       Vivace

The extra virgin olive oil "Vivace" is free of any suspended/floating pulp particles which is a result of a gentle refining filtration system that tumbles the olives in a cotton/wool and then pours into a large steel container.

The result is a naturally filtered green colored "Viride" oil called Vivace: a young oil, fresh and gentle to the palate with a strong fruity scent, and a freshly cut grass flavor.

Taste: Intense, sharp, robust, and elegant with a unique, enjoyably pungent aftertaste.

Gastronomic Combination: Recommended to be served crude/uncooked with bruschetta, salads, and vegetables.
