Question for olive oil experts: Lacrima?

Sarah1218 | Feb 27, 2017 01:07 PM

Read a fabulous book where the main character a perfectionist/ minimalist who likes the best of the best describes making a pasta with a sauce of nothing more than some tellicherry peppercorns, fresh goat's cheese and a special olive oil called lacrima made of " the first precious tears" that rise up from the olives before pressing. Is this a real variety of olive oil?
