Extra Virgin Olive Oil "Nocellara del Belice" Tin (Sicily) - 3 liter


Produced by Asaro in Sicily, Partanna extra virgin olive oil is a first cold-pressed oil. Harvested early in October, Partanna is an unfiltered oil made with Noccelara del Belice olives. When Partanna tins are first opened, the oil is cloudy with a green hue, herbaceous aroma, and strong "pizzicante" flavor. As the oil ages, it will mellow slightly and become clearer as the sediment drops to the bottom of the tin. Partanna's colorful packaging is beautiful enough to leave on your countertop and makes a terrific gift.

Monuments the island's rich history abound, from the famed Valley of the Temples to the immaculate Byzantine mosaics at Cappella Palatina. The cuisine here claims a number of influences from across the Mediterranean world -- Greek, Spanish, French and Arab have all at one point inhabited the island, infusing it with their respective culinary traditions.
