TAMIA CANINESE ORGANICThis olive oil is produced from 100% organic Caninese olives, the prime cultivar of the Tuscia region of central Italy. The area's volcanic soil provides essential minerals to the olive trees and helps form the oil's distinct characteristics. The oil has a fruity aroma of fresh grass and on the palate offers notes of artichoke and green almond. A well-balanced bitter and spicy finish creates a lovely harmony with the oil's fruit flavors. Try it with salmon salads, baked or fried fish, asparagus soups, pasta dishes, and even red meats. We love it drizzled over a thick slice of bread with butter.

VIOLA IL SINCERO"Il Sincero" is an oil produced exclusively from the Moraiolo olive grown in the S. Eraclio di Foligno area of Umbria and is the oldest and primary variety of olive grown on the stony hillside of Viola estate. The fruit is harvested by hand in October at the beginning stage of ripeness, producing an extra virgin olive oil with a unique, intense flavor typical of this variety. This robust oil pairs remarkably well with pork fillet, grilled game, bitter green salads and pulses. It is also excellent drizzled on toasted bread, mature cheeses and citrus sorbets.

QUATTROCIOCCHI OLIVASTRO: Produced from 100% Itrana variety olives grown on the Quattrociocchi Estate in Alatri, this oil has a complex, fruity aroma enhanced yet is pleasantly balanced by bitterness and spiciness.

FRANTOIO FRANCI VILLA MAGRAOne of Frantoio Franci’s most awarded oils from Tuscany, this extra virgin olive oil is intensely fruity with aromas of green olive with fresh and pungent grassy notes with hints of artichoke and elegant notes of roasted coffee. Its taste is powerfully fruity, fresh, grassy, pungent and complex, yet harmonious and well-structured with a fresh, rich finish of spicy grass. Use this oil fresh in soups, on boiled or raw vegetables, bruschetta, red meats, tomato salads, with plain rice or pasta, as well as well-matured cheeses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Buy Olive Oil Online?

It is a proven fact that in just eight hours of close exposure to strong fluorescent lights, a bottle of olive oil packed in a clear glass bottle will be totally destroyed having lost its color, flavors and aromas. While oil packed in a dark glass bottle offers considerably better protection, it too becomes vulnerable when exposed to strong light and can be completely destroyed in less than a week, which makes purchasing olive oil in a supermarket a less than desirable prospect.

Beyond that, the vast majority of the oils sold in the USA have inadequate or even misleading labels. The consumer is given little to no information as to where the oil was actually produced or from what variety of olives it was made, but most importantly, WHEN the oil was harvested.

What Are Some Of The Best Olive Oils?

Simply put, the best olive oils are extra virgin olive oils. However, adulteration of extra virgin olive oil is a hot topic in the past and present, and many studies continue to examine the contents inside a bottle of olive oil. This problem still persists in the industry, especially at the supermarket level.

That's why we created Olive Oil Lovers: to bring some of the world's best olive oils from the most trusted producers to the U.S. market. All of our producers are quality driven in their manufacturing practices. We also conduct an intensive screening of every producer and product on our site - often visting their estates and seeing their practices first-hand - and accept only producers who meet our high standards. To go the extra mile, all of our imported oils are proven extra virgin through chemical analysis in accordance to strict European Union regulations. Therefore, you can trust that any oil you purchase with us at Olive Oil Lovers will be genuine, 100% extra virgin olive oil.

How Long Will Olive Oil Last After The Harvest Date?

There are two dates that producers may choose to print on a bottle, using either one or both. The "Use By" date is what our producers put on their products to say, "use when at its freshest quality." The taste and quality of the oil doesn't typically diminish over time though, unless it's open and exposed to oxygen.

The "Harvest Date" is when the olives for the oil were actually picked and crushed. This date can be any time between late October to mid-December for the Northern Hemisphere, and these new harvest olive oils begin to arrive in the United States in February and March the following year. For oils from the Southern Hemisphere, from countries such as Chile or South Africa, harvest occurs any time between late April to mid-June.

When Is Olive Oil Considered Past its Prime?

While this answer can vary depending on the olive variety, time of harvest, and how the product is stored, in general an extra virgin olive oil will retain much of its flavor and aromas for 18-30 months in an unopened container. However, any exposure to light and/or oxygen will begin to degrade the oil. Once opened, olive oil should be consumed ideally within 1-2 months, with a maximum of perhaps 4-6 months. When purchasing a 3L or 5L tin, if the oil is typically not consumed within this timeframe, we recommend decanting the oil into smaller, sealed containers and storing in a cool, dark place.

Olive oils with higher polyphenol counts will have a longer shelf-life. Higher polyphenol numbers are the result of both the olive variety and when the olive was harvested. Green olives harvested early in the season produce less oil, but have higher polyphenol counts than oils from ripe olives. You can find the polyphenol counts for many of our extra virgin olive oils listed on their product page.
