2020 Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sicily

Tasting notes

Spedalotto Tonda Iblea Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has the strong aroma of tomato leaf and fresh herbs with green, grassy notes. Made with Tonda Iblea olives, this single-varietal olive oil is full of tomato flavor with a luscious buttery texture, and a bright fruity, harmonious finish. A medium intensity oil.

How to use

Spedalotto Tonda Iblea's round fruitiness and bold tomato flavor enhances any tomato-based dish—drizzle over sliced tomatoes garnished with Sicilian oregano blossoms, use to drench bruschetta topped with tomatoes and basil or toss with chopped tomatoes, slivers of garlic and Marinated Capers in Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Herbs for a quick and easy pasta sauce.

About the Producer

On the estate of Marchesi Achille Paterno’ di Spedalotto, there are 7,500 olive trees, all organically farmed and growing the unique Tonda Iblea olive. The altitude and climate here guarantee a perfect environment for growing olives, and the area is now under the strict quality control laws of a Denominazione di Origine Protetta (DOP), guaranteeing olive oil excellence year after year. Harvesting is done entirely by hand before crushing in a nearby frantoio (olive mill). Careful decanting into stainless steel tanks plus one month of settling ensure a beautifully clear oil. Tondo DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil is an incredible sensory experience: sweet, fruity and harmonious.

The best Olive Oil ever!

I received a bottle of this olive oil in a promotion by Market Hall. I have tasted many wonderful olive oils, both here in the US and in Europe, and I can sincerely say that this is the best tasting olive oil I have ever experienced. The day I received this oil, I made a fresh salad and used the oil and a nice wine vinegar as a dressing. Wow, honestly, I couldn't stop eating. It was just so fresh and green tasting. I am, as you can see, very impressed. If you like a pure, grassy and fresh taste in olive oil, you will love this oil. I will be buying more.
