These local Taggiasche olives, from which the pit has been removed, are preserved in the best Armato olive oil. They make for an ideal addition to any cheese plate or for a luxurious puttanesca.
The Armato Family
The Armato family has been involved in the olive trade and the production of olive oil for multiple generations. Aldo was small in stature and modest in nature but fiercely proud of his long family tradition of producing olive oil from the ancient groves of trees (exclusively the Taggiasca variety) planted in the hills above the town of Alassio on the Ligurian coast.
Aldo and Laura's legacy has been handed down to their daughter, Alessandra, and her husband, Giordano Mazzariol. Alessandra and Giordano form a dynamic couple whose energy and intelligence effect continuous improvement in the quality that blesses this lovely olive oil. They have combined their talents to extend the use of their locally renowned olive oil to make a series of products that are devastatingly delicious.
