Each Italian Lover’s Gift Set contains three (60ml) Fresh infused or fused Extra Virgin Olive oils and three (60ml) Aged Balsamics that can be paired together or used separately. A description card is enclosed in the gift with the information on each oil and vinegar.
Basil Oil: Fresh, green and herbal. Made from premium, ultra fresh, extra virgin olive oil from our collection blended in small, artisan batches with 100% natural flavors. Try it on a summer salad or caprese and let your taste buds travel to the shores of the Mediterranean.
Traditional Style Balsamic: Our finest grade of aged balsamic condimento from Modena, Italy is produced in the traditional style. It is aged using the Solera system for up to 18 years in chestnut, oak, mulberry and ash barrels. With a 4%acidity, our Four Leaf Quality Equivalent Condimento is exceedingly rich, complex and dense. It pairs beautifully with any olive oil in our collection for vinaigrettes, glazes or marinades. Also, try it drizzled over ice cream or with fresh fruits and berries.
Tuscan Herb Oil: A delicious blend of herbs, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic infused olive oil. Use it on everything from salad dressings to marinades. Sprinkle with grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and a few twists of freshly ground pepper for an irresistible bread dipper. Wonderful with chicken, fish and vegetables. Pairs well with our Sicilian lemon balsamic.
Sicilian Lemon Balsamic: Playfully tart and pleasantly sweet, our Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic has a perfectly balanced acidity and a crisp, lemon flavor and aroma. Fabulous with seafood, in dressings or in mixed drinks. Mix together with our Tuscan Herb Oil for a wonderfully fresh salad dressing!
Milanese Gremolata Oil: Gremolata is a traditional Italian herb condiment consisting of fresh lemon zest, minced garlic, Italian flat leaf parsley and a hint of mint. The herbs and citrus zest are typically crushed together in a mortar to release their pungent essential oils. Pairs well with our Sicilian Lemon, Grapefruit or Traditional Style Condimento. Try finishing your fish with this exciting flavor combination. It is also traditionally served with osso buco, veal and other slow braised dishes to add a zip of flavor. We also recommend our Gremolata for marinating poultry and for dressings.
Espresso Balsamic: Makes a fantastic glaze or BBQ base for pork, beef or chicken. Add a shot to an “affogatto float”, which calls for a tall mug of vanilla gelato scoops covered with coffee.
Note: Our pour spouts do not fit the 60ml bottles in our gift sets. (there is no need for a pour spout to be added to the 60ml gift set)
