2017 Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sicily

Aroma: Tondo DOP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has the strong aroma of tomato leaf and fresh herbs with green, grassy notes.

Flavor: 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.

Uses: Tondo DOP'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.
