Los Angeles 2016 Gold Medal

This is the outstanding Nocellara del Belice selection. This remarkable oil has been granted Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Organic Farming 2015 by Flos Olei. Scored 98/100 for 2016. It’s hard to keep up with their many awards!

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.

Tenute Librandi 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.

Nocellara del Belice, most often a Sicilian cultivar, yields oil that is green with golden yellow hues. The aroma is strong and rotund. You’ll note rich fruity notes of ripe tomato, banana, and white apple, with hints of basil, sage, and mint. Complex and vegetal; some note celery, lettuce, and broad beans, finishing with characteristic bitterness and pungency. Certified Organic.

2018 Tasting Notes: The aroma is fresh and spicy, fruity with elements of tomatoes and tomato leaf. Once on the tongue, there is an vapor that makes the mouth sing. Oh so pleasant and grassy, notable spice, and minimal bitter characteristics. 

Excellent with tomato bruschetta, swordfish, lentil soups, pasta with meat sauce, game, and aged cheese.
