Titone Organic DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2017 Sicilian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Aroma: Strong nose of freshly mown grass, tomato leaf and fresh herbs.
Flavor: Titone Organic DOP Extra Virgin Olive oil is an expertly-balanced oil with bright notes of tomato, artichoke and green herbs with a whisper of pepper that lingers on the palate. A medium to robust oil.
Uses: This masterful Sicilian blend if our number one choice for finishing—pour it abundantly over blanched vegetables with a spritz of lemon and a few flakes of Maldon Sea Salt, add a final flourish to Pasta con le Sarde (Pasta with Sardines and Fennel) or drizzle over grilled fish and seafood.
Titone olive oil also makes a beautiful base for fresh herb-based sauces like Italian salsa verde, chimichurri and French pistou.
About the producer
Titone is produced in the northwest coastal province of Trapani on the island of Sicily. In fact, the family that owns the 3,000 olive trees on hundreds of hectares, insist that organic farming is the only way to produce a quality olive oil. The precision they use to produce this oil no doubt is based on the exacting nature of the family's other business... chemistry and pharmaceuticals!
