Map of Sicilia

Sicilia (Sicily in English) is so different from the rest of Italy that it could be its own country -- which many Sicilians think it should be. The familiar cities of Sicilia include Palermo, and Sicilia is home of Mount Etna.

Olive oils from the coast regions of Sicilia often have intense flavors. From the region around Ragusa, the oils tend to have more body and be more fruity. From the hills of Sicilia, the oils tend to be more well rounded, particularly the oils from the Belice river valley near Menfi. In other words, Sicilian oil is as varied as the region itself.

The olive varieties include Belice, Biancolilla, Moresca, Cerasuola, Nocellara, and Tonda Iblea. Among our notable Sicilian olive oils: Villa Zottopera, Gianfranco Becchina, Santisi, Titone and Zisola.

An island dominated by the volcano, Mt. Etna, Sicily is home to a great variety of agricultural produce including citrus fruits, grapes, olives, artichokes, pistachios and mulberries—amidst wild vegetation and typically Mediterranean palm trees and stone pines. The large size of the island allows for many micro-climates for cultivating olive groves. We’ve carefully selected the finest Sicilian olive oils for Olio2go.
