Fruity and flavorful, this organic extra virgin olive oil from Centonze is another Sicilian stunner. It’s made with organically grown Nocellara del Belice olives that are picked by hand in southwestern Sicily, near the historic Ancient Greek settlement of Selinunte. Oils made with this native Sicilian olive are intensely flavored, deep green, and layered with herbal and fruit notes. This oil is presented in a gorgeously decorated tin that pays homage to Sicily’s rich history and makes a stunning addition to your countertop. (Bonus: The airtight, opaque tin protects the volatile compounds in the oil, keeping it fresh and tasty!)

Since 1953, the Centonze family have been making olive oil in the stunning Case di Latomie, an historic quarry-turned-olive grove. Here, the ancient Greeks who occupied Sicily extracted large blocks of limestone for construction, and their marks remain in the rough walls and steps that dot the grove. It was one of the very first areas in the Mediterranean where olive cultivation took place. Today, truly ancient olive trees grow in harmony with the ancient limestone, twisting around and across the walls as they continue to bear fruit. It’s a beautiful landscape that exists outside of time.

Centonze are dutiful safeguards of this special place so that it can be enjoyed and appreciated for ages to come. Their olives are harvested by hand to capture each one at the peak of flavor. Every drop of their extraordinary oil communicates the essence of Sicily’s history.

This monovarietal olive oil is delicate and fresh, with a medium fruitiness and notes of tomato and almond. It’s deep green in color with glints of golden yellow, with an opacity that comes from a high level of the flavor compounds that make olive oil a nutritional powerhouse. It’s well suited for fish dishes of all kinds, vegetables, and red meat.
