The Wall Street Journal, 10 January 2019, page D5: Najmieh Batmanglij. The cookbook author dishes... "My pantry is always stocked with Olio Quattrociocchi Olivastro, an organic olive oil..." and further recommends its wonderful use in salads.

The Quattrociocchi family has been growing olives since the year 1888, their passion handed down through generations. The family farm, the Quattrociocchi home for generations, is located among centuries old olive groves on the Alatri hills, in the heart of the Ciociaria area of Lazio, southeast of Rome.

The olive grove spans approximately 120 hectares and with 34,000 trees of the Moraiolo, Leccino, and Itrana varieties. Olivastro is a monocultivar oil, composed solely of Itrana olives. The oil is certified organic.

The entire product processing cycle takes place on the farm which sets the standards for organic family: from growing and harvesting the olives to the crushing, all steps are completed directly in the farm’s own oil mill. The oil is then stored in steel silos, where it remains until bottling.

A light green oil with golden notes. It is intensely fruity with elements of fresh herbs enhanced by notes of cardoon and green tomato. Bitterness and spiciness are well balanced, yet the spicy characteristic is persistent.

Best on fresh green salads, pinzimonio, roasted and grilled vegetables, broiled and grilled fish, and pasta. 

2018 Tasting Notes: We love Olivastro's herbacous notes! We found it to have a beautiful aroma, possess vegetale and herbaceous notes, with lingering spicy/peppery notes. This oil has just slight bitter notes.
