Always a favorite, the new Titone opens a bit sweet and definitely grassy, and brings forth several characteristics including green banana and eucalyptus. You can count on a strong finish. The oil has the taste and aroma typical of the best Valli Trapanesi oils. Crafted from nocellara, biancolilla, and cerasuola olives.
For those seeking the benefits of hydroxytyrosol, Titone contains a high level of antioxidants, as required by the DOP standards for this region. This one wins tastes tests when sampled with a variety of others.
Aroma: Grassy, herbaceous, perhaps a bit of apple
Taste: Pungent, peppery, bitter, elements of artichoke, something citrusy, and thoughts of rosemary
