Outstanding. Planeta extra virgin olive oil comes from the noted Valle di Mazara. This area is in western Sicily, running north to south, just east of the coastal zone Valli Trapanesi.

Previously, produced only for family, Planeta has been bottled for sale for just over 10 years. They’ve made great strides and certainly produce a top-quality unfiltered extra virgin olive oil, with both IGP certification and notable awards.

The family grove, Capparrina, is situated on fertile land by the sea near Menfi, in the province of Agrigento. Planeta is composed of Nocellara del Belice (50%), Cerasuola (30%) and Biancolilla (20%) olives.

We found the intense fruity aroma and flavors to be herbaceous, with elements of citrus, artichokes, and tomato leaf and even herbs such as flat leaf parsley and sweet basil. The flavor is full and layered with a moderate spicy-peppery finish with nutty almond notes. Minimal bitter characteristics. 

Recommended pairings include tomatoes and mixed salads, grilled vegetables, firm cheeses, and even a topping for vanilla ice cream. (If you have time, make olive oil ice cream).
