De Carlo Felice Garibaldi extra virgin olive oil 0.5 litre was first made in honor of Felice Garibaldi, brother of the “Hero of the Two Worlds” and a prominent entrepreneur in the oil production business. In 1835, Garibaldi realized the benefits of distinguishing and selecting trees by species, of harvesting the fruit separately and of not mixing the various qualities in the oil production phase: this approach was revolutionary for its time, and lay the foundations for a historic change that still reaps benefits today.
“L’olio di Felice Garibaldi” is a monocultivar oil that boasts Slow Food features; it is produced from 100% Oligarola Olive Oil (Cima di Bitonto), and is harvested directly from the plant and then crushed within 12 hours of harvesting in the company’s mill.
It is a delicious medium intensity extra virgin olive oil. It is ideal on raw, roasted or steamed fish, seafood, and hence for hors d’oeuvres, delicious first courses, carpaccio meat/fish and vegetables.
Aroma: Hints of meadow grass and green tomato
Taste: Soft and balanced, touches of fresh grass and an aftertaste of green almonds and subtle hints of pepper
