This delicate Varietal extra virgin olive oil is kissed by the bright and bold flavour of fresh basil oil extract. The vibrant and complex aroma and flavour of freshly chopped basil leaves are unequivocal. This bestselling olive oil beautifully enhances pasta, tomato-based soups, grilled vegetables, and soft cheeses. Use it as a base for a vibrant and flavourful arugula or spinach pesto, drizzle it over homemade tomato soup, and use it to sauté, grill or roast vegetables, especially eggplant.
