Product Description

 

500ml | Tondo Extra Virgin Olive Oil | DOP Monte Iblei | 2016 Harvest

Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil


TONDO is an incredible sensory experience: sweet, fruity and harmonious, made with the famous Tonda Iblea olives of the Monti Iblei region. A delightful complexity is extracted from this single varietal olive, a result of the craftsmanship that goes into the cultivation of rich soil. It’s robust and buttery, with a satisfying aroma of tomato leaf that gives way to green, grassy and floral notes.

USDA-approved organic.

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. Harvesting is done entirely by hand before crushing in a nearby frantoio (olive mill). Chiaramonte Gulfi is known in Sicily as il balcone della Sicilia (Sicily’s balcony) because of its high position atop the Monti Iblei ridge. 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 (D.O.P.), guaranteeing olive oil excellence year after year.
