Produced by De Carlo

Made from stone-crushed Ogliarola and Coratina olives harvested in the Bitritto countryside.

  • Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Coratina, Ogliarola

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Acidity: 0.2%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2020

    As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.

Description

"Il Classico" from De Carlo is made from stone-crushed Ogliarola and Coratina olives harvested in the Bitritto countryside by carefully selected farmers who have worked with the De Carlo family for generations. The Ogliarola and Coratina olives, harvested straight from the tree, are processed within 24 hours in the company olive press. The resulting oil has a strong olive aroma with hints of artichokes and green almonds. Its flavor is soft and balanced, characterized by hints of fresh grass with a sweet almond aftertaste. Its subtle taste is ideal for adding flavor to all kinds of dishes without altering the particular characteristics of the raw ingredients used. Try with boiled or baked fish, fried seafood, sauces and roast meats.

The Producer
MADE FOR YOU BY

De Carlo

The De Carlo family heritage of the magnificent olives cultivated in their groves can be found in the oldest documents in the archives of Bitritto that date as far back as the 16th century. Today the De Carlo family still produces prized, exclusive oil on its farm in the famous Conca Barese in the Bitritto area. In the 1980s the De Carlos decided to promote the fine quality of their oil by making it known around the world with the firm belief that the development of the company was not incompatible with the long tradition implicit in the De Carlo name.

Today the family uses the most advanced technology while still preserving its traditional, artisanal origins. The new generation, who all share the same passion inherited from their parents, have developed a company policy focused on a short supply chain (most of the raw materials come from their own fields), top quality, great flavor and the very highest levels of customer satisfaction.
