Marino Organic Monte Iblei Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Sicily) - 17oz. bottle
The Marino family proudly produces organic food products on their farm in southeast Sicily, in the province of Siracusa. Their native terroir, enriched by the Sicilian sun, as well as by tradition-bound stewardship, yield deep flavors in the Marino family’s hand-tended olives.
Marino Farm’s award-winning, monovarietal organic extra virgin olive oil is made from 100% Tonda Iblea olives, harvested from a grove of only about 500 trees. We are proud to present an olive oil that is both organic and typical of the Monte Iblei zone. In fact, the village name of Ferla is historically connected with the Tonda Iblea olive--also called the "Ferlese" olive. This extra virgin oil has earned the Marino family an outstanding rating by the 2010 Slow Food Guide to Extra Virgin Olive Oils.
The olives are grown and harvested at Marino's estate in Italy.
