Partanna Olive Oil
Since 1916, the Asaro Brothers Company in Partanna, Sicily, has been cold-pressing this authentic early harvest extra virgin olive oil. It’s unique & award winning taste is due to the fact that it is produced exclusively from Nocellara del Belice olives native to Sicily. These olives are only picked in the early harvest season of October.
Partanna Extra Virgin Olive Oil is unfiltered giving it a cloudy green hue when first opened that mellows slightly with age. It’s flavor is referred to as pizzicante, an Italian phrase used to describe the strong flavor “that tickles the back of the throat” very characteristic of Tuscan olive oils.
Partanna Olive Oil was featured in Real Simple magazine as 1 of 7 picks for “best olive oils” ideal for drizzling over finished dishes and accompanying the perfect salad.
Only a very limited number of cases of Partanna Olive Oil are produced each year! The oil is sold in beautifully decorative tins and traditional glass bottles which makes it a lovely addition to any one of our gourmet specialty baskets
