Organic is much more than merely a label or a certification. Organic stands for quality and conviction-- for the responsible use of natures resources.
Our Italian Mono-Cultivar Coratina is a small-production extra virgin olive oil from a producer in Puglia, the region making up the "heel" of Italy's "boot." Made from 100% Coratina olives, hand-harvested and rigorously cold-pressed within a few short hours of being plucked from the trees, this olive oil has a classic Pugliese taste coupled with low acidity. Its bold-yet-balanced suite of flavors is kept intact by state-of-the-art milling and handling. The love and dedication that goes into producing this exquisite example of Italy's finest extra virgin olive oils has led it to stand out among all other Italian cultivar base on its complexity.
Flavor: If the condition is just Coratina normally is among the highest in antioxidants and solid lipid sturcture among all other Italian cultivars. Many purchase it to take one tablespoon at a time as a nutritional supplement. Coratina's high polyphenol count places it at the top of all Italian extra virgin olive oils, giving the oil its characteristic pungent and peppery aftertaste.
Country of Origin: Italy
