A delicious olive oil naturally infused with basil, DiSanto's Bourbon del Monte basilico oil is a fantastic addition to any kitchen. Ideal for breads, mozzarella, pizzas, soups, marinades, salad dressings, pestos and pastas, this fusion of 100% extra-virgin olive oil and fresh basil leaves brings the fragrance, colour and flavour of Italy into your home.

Basil is a popular, highly aromatic leafy herb that belongs to the mint family, and is used all over the world, but especially in Mediterranean, Indian and Thai cuisines.

DiSanto's selected olive oil producer, the family-run Frantoio Vabro, is situated in the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany. The Brogi family has tended its olive groves on the slopes of Monte Amiata near Montepulciano for generations. Holder of numerous awards and certifications, Frantoio Vabro is famed for its fruity Bourbon del Monte aromatic oils, celebrated for their perfectly balanced flavours. The olives are hand-harvested and cold-pressed within 24 hours of collection, with milling occurring at a temperature below 27°C to preserve the original characteristics and nutritional values of the olives.

This exceptional Italian olive oil comprises extra-virgin olive oil infused with 5% fresh basil leaves. Basil adds a sweet fragrance and a delicate, peppery taste to various dishes. It is ideal for dressing a caprese salad, or simply for drizzling over tomatoes. Use it to marinate steak, chicken and fish, or for adding flavour to grilled and roasted vegetables. Or, simply eat it with fresh-out-of-the-oven focaccia. A bottle of DiSanto's beautiful green basilico oil elevates any dish.
