Every kitchen needs a versatile extra virgin olive oil, and this one from Fratepietro is a stunner. It’s made from a blend of bella di Cerignola and coratina olives grown in sunny Puglia on the Fratepietro family estate and is well-balanced enough to use in your everyday cooking, but has a crisp flavor that shines as a finishing oil.

Bella di Cerignola olives have been grown around the northern Puglian town of (you guessed it!) Cerignola for centuries, and are protected by DOP certification—an official seal of approval that identifies the most special regional foods in the country. They have a characteristically nutty, mild flavor and buttery texture that is prized by olive aficionados around the world. Coratina olives have a strong, spicy flavor that, when combined with the mild Cerignolas, gives this olive oil just the right amount of oomph.

On the heel of Italy's boot, Puglia is known for its beautiful whitewashed towns, sparkling beaches, and rich agricultural history. It's also home to Agricola Fratepietro, a fifth-generation family-owned company that has been growing Bella di Cerignola olives since 1890. Their olives are picked by hand to ensure each one is perfectly ripe, and are cold-pressed just a few hours later to make this beautifully fruity oil.

This fruity extra virgin olive oil has a slightly bitter aftertaste, with notes of artichoke, unripe tomato, and fresh almond. It can be used for cooking or as a finishing oil, though, like all extra virgin olive oils, it should not be exposed to high heat. This oil pairs wells with chicken-based dishes, salads, vegetables, fish, and fresh cheeses like mozzarella or ricotta. Let the flavor sing by drizzling it on a simple bruschetta or serving it with homemade bread. For an elegantly decadent dessert, pool some of this oil over a scoop of chocolate gelato and top with a sprinkle of crunchy sea salt.
