description

Six great young Italian producers have created Opera Olei. It is a set of six monocultivar olive oils, representing six regions of Italy. Boxed Set. This purchase includes an olive oil tasting class to be scheduled with Johnny Madge. 


"An entertaining, informative and hugely enjoyable on-line olive oil tasting with the charming Johnny Madge! We had such a fun evening, tasting different oils, remembering delicious Mediterranean dishes and thinking about what to cook with the little bottles we had received... while chatting with Johnny and learning all about olive growing, oil production and olive oil judging in Japan. Johnny was so generous with his time and his knowledge, and so easy-going, we could have chatted for hours. Locked down in gloomy England, we travelled in spirit and feel able to dream again of Italian adventures to come.

Opera Olei brings to market the Italian excellence crafted by six young producers, who decided to extract premium oil from green olives, harvesting and pressing at an earlier stage compared to past, traditional methods.

Opera Olei is a perfect synthesis enhancing the territory, the cultivar and the producer:

46 Parallelo by Agraria di Riva del Garda (Trentino-Alto Adige). 200 year old trees. Recommended with arugula or chicory salads and cooked vegetables, vegetarian lasagna, and strangolapreti (Trentino-style spinach dumplings). Casaliva olives.

Villa Magra Grand Cru by Frantoio Franci (Tuscany) , from young Frantoio trees. Ideal with tartare or carpaccio – and an excellent topping on vanilla ice cream. Or make your own gelato?

Sincero by Viola (Umbria), from Century-old trees. Moraiolo enhances legume soups, field vegetable salads, and grilled red meat. 

Ottobratica by Olearia San Giorgio (Calabria) , where the trees are 200 years old. Recommended with shellfish, grilled white meat, the perfect mayonnaise

Primo Tonda Iblea by Frantoi Cutrera (Sicily) , here the trees are over 300 years old. Ideal with grilled meat and fish. Perfect for tomato sauce.

Mimi by Donata Conserva (Puglia), a Coratina monocultivar from the hilly lands of red soil and silver olives leaves rolling toward the sea. This intense selection is ideal for vegetables and grilled meats.

Opera Olei demonstrates the best of Italy in the world and the result obtained is the best expression of an extra virgin olive oil linked to particular territories. This set, attractively boxed, is accompanied by a detailed booklet with descriptions of the olive oils, their producers, and recommended pairings.
