2015 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:mild-medium intensity olive oil with buttery, tomato flavor and a fruity, harmonious finish. This is a gentle oil with a well-balanced, grassy finish. 

Uses: Try Tondo DOP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a finishing oil for a simple bowl of Lemon Ricotta Ravioli. This Sicilian extra virgin olive oil would be superb over a fava bean risotto or a panzanella bread salad. Dress cups of cold gazpacho or use to drizzle over freshly seared sea scallops.

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.
