AMY RIOLO SELECTIONS
Amy Riolo Selections Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Abruzzo) - 17 oz
Chef Amy's extra-virgin olive oil selection is an artisan-blend containing two olive cultivars which are indigenous to “The greenest region in Europe,” also known as Abruzzo. In this carefully crafted blend, the Gentile di Chieti and the Intosso olive varieties are harvested directly from the plant and milled immediately, allowing harmonious, sweet, fresh, and fruity characteristics to permeate the oil.
Located near the Adriatic Sea and the mountains, the Fattoria Italiana Martelli orchard is situated in a particular microclimate which is ideal for olive growing. Both the region’s location and the Martelli family’s olive growing techniques produce an oil with very low acidity, a high phenolic profile, and fantastic flavor.
This one-of-a-kind oil boasts notes of tomatoes, almonds, herbs, and artichokes. It pairs well with grilled and roasted meats, poultry and fish, tomato sauces, cooked vegetable dishes, salads, and a wide range of antipasti. Chef Amy also uses it to bake pizza, cakes, sweet breads, and muffins. The estate’s specialties have earned them many Italian and international accolades, and they are committed to quality, innovation, and sustainability.
