Frantoia Barbera Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is unfiltered, made only with olives grown in Sicily, Italy. Milled within 24 hours after being hand-harvested from trees in the hillsides of West-Central Sicily, this fruity yet spicy olive oil is crafted from three different olives to produce a robust flavor. These Sicilian olives grown in fertile volcanic soil include Cerasuola, Biancolilla, and Nocellara which come together to create a slightly viscous density, green-yellow color, and fresh, herbaceous olive taste. This 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil is a fantastic finishing oil to drizzle over fish, pasta, risotto, and mixed greens.
The Barbera family has been producing olive oil since the late 1880s when brothers Lorenzo and Vincenzo Barbera started cultivating olives and citrus on a farm outside of Palermo. The company's official name, Premiati Oleifici Barbera, continues to celebrate the great tradition of Sicilian olive oil today using recipes and processes passed down through generations.
