Dip And Drizzle For A Culinary Experience Like No Other!
Our Top Five Of 2018 • #2

Why is Fontodi's Extra Virgin Olive Oil our #2 pick of 2018?

Prepare yourself for a sensory overload!

Situated in Panzano's prime Conca d'Oro (golden shell), Fontodi's estate may be most famous for its prized Chiantis... but not after today!

Creamy, rich and textured, this Tuscan olive oil is in a league of its own.

A warm 2017 harvest created undeniable intensity of flavor: green olive, artichoke, fresh herbs and grassy notes precede a buttery texture with exotic pepper spice on the finish - just enough to let you know there is another dimension without taking over its primary flavors.

From a blend of Correggiolo and Moraiolo olives, the former provides the spice and the latter its creamy, soft texture.

Liberally dip, drizzle or sauté. This olive oil will not overpower your meal; rather, it will complement all culinary elements.

Picked and hand pressed the same day for freshness, this organic olive oil is poured exclusively at some of the finest restaurants from Europe to New York City, in particular the New York Times critically acclaimed restaurant, King, in SoHo.

Your meals will never be the same again.

Enjoy!

$37.95 per bottle / $455.40 per case
