Tin packaging is inherently fragile and prone to denting. We ensure all tins leave our facility in perfect condition and well-packaged, however, we cannot guarantee that there will not be some denting while in transit particularly during these challenging times when the courier services are overwhelmed.

A dented tin is a cosmetic issue that does not affect the quality of the oil. Consequently we will not accept tin returns unless they are severely damaged or leaking, after all, the most important factor is the quality of the oil inside.

Produced by De Carlo

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

  • Extra Virgin 3 Liters (101 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.

FAQs
  • 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.

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.
