Gambero Rosso, Foglie Rosse, 2017

It seems that we were destined to meet Michele and Angela Librandi to add their famous olive oil to our store. We had exchanged emails in the past, and certainly we had had requests for their oil from Calabria and we had a most fortunate meeting at Olio Capitale in Trieste.

They are both charming and enthusiastic as they share their family's exquisite organic extra virgin olive oil. What we found most difficult was determining which selections to import. We chose Carolea as a fine representation of the traditions of Calabria and the Nocellara del Belice for the craftsmanship.

Azienda Agricola Librandi Pasquale is located in Vaccarizzo Albanese in Cosenza, Calabria. With 27,000 trees and a mill on the property, they are able to mill within four hours of picking.

Carolea, common to Calabria and the south of Italy, is yellow with green hues. The aroma brings forth definitive notes of fresh olives, tomato and hints of green almond. Rich and buttery.  The oil is harmonious and balanced with both bitter and spicy notes. Some note artichoke characteristics. The finish has notes of almond. Certified Organic.

2018 Tasting Notes: Fresh intensity is the first phrase that comes to mind. The aroma is fruity with notes of tomato and tomato leaf. We characterize the mild bitter notes as clean because they are not long-lasting. There is a pleasantly spicy finish. This is sure to be a favorite to taste in our retail store this year. 

This calls out for crunchy salads as well as rich meals with peppers, potatoes, olives, and roasted meats. 

Olio Librandi has been recognized by Marco Oreggio in Flos Olei 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, a significant measure of quality. The maximum score 98/100 places Librandi among the top 11 farms in the world.
