Partanna extra virgin olive oil in a 1 liter size is packed after the first pressing of olives in mid-October. This is an unfiltered, green-gold oil. The tin protects its freshness. Partanna is good for many uses — from light sauteing to vinaigrettes to drizzling over roasted meats or vegetables.
Partanna Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 1 Liter
Produced in Partanna, Sicily, this oil is a first cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil, but it is also an early harvest (October), single-olive varietal (Nocellara del Belice), unfiltered oil. When the tins are first opened, the oil is cloudy with a green hue, herbaceous aroma and ‘pizzicante’ flavor. (Pizzicante is an Italian phrase that describes the strong flavor that grips the back of your throat and is characteristic of most Tuscan olive oils.)
