We love this olive oil for its robust peppery flavour. It is a D.O.P. olive oil, meaning it is made with only one olive variety from a very specific area in Sicily. This certification ensures its authenticity, certifying that it is produced from one specific olive variety grown only in that specific area. Similar to the concept of “terroir”, this olive oil will display unique characteristics that are reflective of the a specific climate of the region and therefore can not be duplicated in flavour.
