Description
 
Our Italian Coratina is a small-production extra virgin olive oil from a producer in Puglia, the region making up the "heel" of Italy's "boot." Made from 100% Coratina olives, hand-harvested and rigorously cold-pressed within a few short hours of being plucked from the trees, this olive oil has a classic Pugliese taste coupled with low acidity. Its bold-yet-balanced suite of flavors is kept intact by state-of-the-art milling and handling. The love and dedication that goes into producing this exquisite example of Italy's finest extra virgin olive oils has led to Coratina's D.O.P. designation, which stands for "Denominazione d'Origine Protetta"--Protected Designation of Origin--a high honor in the country with the world's highest standards for olive oil, in an area renowned for its olive oil for thousands of years.

FLAVOR PROFILE:
This Coratina is among the highest in antioxidants carried by Olive Oil & Beyond. Because of this, many purchase it to take one tablespoon at a time as a nutritional supplement. Coratina's high polyphenol count places it at the top of all Italian extra virgin olive oils, giving the oil its characteristic pungent and peppery aftertaste.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
Buttery smooth and bold, our Coratina extra virgin is delicious in bruschetta rustica with toasted bread, a rubbing of raw garlic and a sprinkle of sea salt. Try it over bitter lettuce salads (radicchio, arugula, chicory) and summer tomatoes with our Traditional or Fig Balsamic vinegars, or by itself on gazpacho or other chilled summer soups. This Coratina is also perfect as a finishing oil for grilled or roasted meats, fish and poultry, in herb marinades, or as part of a dressing for grilled vegetables.

Organic is much more than merely a label or a certification. Organic stands for quality and conviction-- for the responsible use of natures resources.
