Many would be surprised to learn that a number of well known expensive extra virgin ' Italian ' oils on the market are NOT pure Italian. They are mixed with oils from the EU, as can be verified by checking their labels. This Extra virgin olive oil is the REAL deal. An authentic superb quality Tuscan Extra virgin olive oil at an exceptional price . Absolutely gorgeous.
real Italian extra virgin olive oil
This evo oil is amazing. You can tell the difference in comparison to other cheap products. The taste it's strong and a bit bitter, but it is exactly what it should be. It has the correct taste, colour, texture of an authentic evo oil. It is not a mixture of poor quality oils, olives or waste (for example from Turkey...). It has a superb quality. I don't understand the comments below, maybe they never tried finest products. Please remember that to get a proper authentic extra virgin olive oil you shouldn't buy anything under €10 per litre - due to the costs of production and quality controls of olives in Italy. This one has the certification of the Ministry of Agriculture. It is a great item, lovely to be used on pasta, salad, fish, vegetables. Compliments to Tesco for storing this and keeping an honest price, especially because of Brexit.
Not quite the Finest
Absolutely awful Not only did the cap not close properly once opened the oil was absolute rubbish. The standard PB oil is much tastier. If i could be bothered I'd complain to Tesco. Finest, I think NOT
I use a lot of olive oil since I spent a short whi
I use a lot of olive oil since I spent a short while living in Florence many years ago. I cook with coconut oil, so this raw oil is drizzled over my food for almost every meal, used for dressings too! I LOVE IT!! On investigation I found out that Tesco Tuscan olive oil is the one of the purest, unadulterated olive oils on the market. (The olive oil industry has become infiltrated with cheaper oils being mixed with pure oils, because demand outstrips supply.) I have always found the purest olive oils to have a bitter after-taste, that is the nature of the beast. Dont decry this oil because, in my opinion, it tastes exactly like it should!
I can’t believe how bad this tastes if this is the finest I fear for the cheap stuff. Never again.
Yum the best
Very tasty and thicker than the cheaper versions , I’ve had ones that have been more watery. I use this for cooking and drizzled on salads or avacado egg
Unless I picked up a bad batch, - one to avoid
I don't usually leave reviews, unless I feel really passionate about the product as I do with this one. I use a lot of olive oil and look for one's on offer. With this, however, I thought I would treat myself to what seemed to be reasonably priced for a 'Finest' item. Big mistake! It tastes awful. I made a dressing with it and it was completely unpalatable. It has a bitter after taste and not in the least bit fruity. Hey ho, you live and learn. Sorry manufacturers, but I would go back to the drawing board with this one.
It was just unbelievably yummy— makes you dream of beautiful summer days, the flavour feels like sunshine on your back.
For this price, this oil is an absolute steal. We
For this price, this oil is an absolute steal. We have visited this area and the oil is very typical of this region.
Probably the best oil you can buy
