Frantoi Cutrera Primo DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml

An Award-Winning Choice

The Pri¬≠mo DOP EVOO of Fran¬≠toi Cutr¬≠era is the first olive oil from Mon¬≠ti Iblei (Hyblaean Moun¬≠tains) in Sici¬≠ly, Italy to receive DOP sta¬≠tus from the Euro¬≠pean Union. This medi¬≠um-inten¬≠si¬≠ty oil boasts a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful bal¬≠ance between bit¬≠ter and spicy flavors.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Pri¬≠mo DOP EVOO has a fruity aro¬≠ma and pro¬≠nounced notes of green toma¬≠to, aro¬≠mat¬≠ic herbs, and arti¬≠choke. This monocul¬≠ti¬≠var oil comes from Ton¬≠da Iblea olives, which are har¬≠vest¬≠ed from the Ragusa area of Sici¬≠ly just before they turn from green to black. Their green-gold oil pro¬≠duces the unique toma¬≠to notes.

Olive oil from Sici¬≠ly is more fra¬≠grant and less pep¬≠pery than those from the Ital¬≠ian main¬≠land, and the Fran¬≠toi Cutr¬≠era com¬≠pa¬≠ny shows this to best advan¬≠tage. The Cutr¬≠era fam¬≠i¬≠ly har¬≠vests the olives by hand and then takes the fruits to the mill to be pressed with¬≠in six hours of pick¬≠ing to cre¬≠ate the finest of oils.

PREPA­RA­TION

The Pri¬≠mo DOP EVOO is ver¬≠sa¬≠tile as a driz¬≠zle over appe¬≠tiz¬≠ers and a fin¬≠ish for main cours¬≠es. Because of its under¬≠ly¬≠ing fla¬≠vor notes, it‚Äôs per¬≠fect on a toma¬≠to bruschet¬≠ta or any oth¬≠er fresh veg¬≠etable-based starter. It also makes a fine fin¬≠ish for beef carpac¬≠cio or, on the oppo¬≠site end of the meaty cook¬≠ing spec¬≠trum, a roast or a pork stir-fry. A spoon¬≠ful over a grilled fish ele¬≠vates its fresh¬≠ness. This oil is also good as a final toss for old-fash¬≠ioned pota¬≠to fries!

AN INGE­NIOUS ROAD TO SUCCESS

The Cutr¬≠era fam¬≠i¬≠ly has been pro¬≠duc¬≠ing olive oil in Sici¬≠ly since 1906, eighty years before the region became famous for its prod¬≠ucts. While most grow¬≠ers favor the west¬≠ern part of the island, the Cutr¬≠eras chose 75 hectares in Mon¬≠ti Iblei for their metic¬≠u¬≠lous olive oil-mak¬≠ing process.

This is why Pri¬≠mo DOP EVOO has been a stead¬≠fast Gold Award Win¬≠ner of the NYIOOC World Olive Oil Com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠tion‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe largest and most pres¬≠ti¬≠gious olive oil con¬≠test in the world‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČfor the past sev¬≠er¬≠al years.
