Titone Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2020 Sicilian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This year's Titone Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from 50% organically farmed Cerasuola olives and Nocellara del Belice (previous harvests have been a blend of Biancolilla, Nocellara and Cerasuola). 2020 Titone is a masterful olive oil with bright, herbaceous notes of arugula and a hint of tomato leaf. A pleasing finish of black pepper lingers on the palate. A robust oil.
How to use
This single-varietal Sicilian olive oil is 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!
