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 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.

Nocellara, most often a Sicilian cultivar (Nocellara del Belice), 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 with vegetable characteristics; some note celery, lettuce, and broad beans, finishing with characteristic bitterness and pungency. Certified Organic.

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.

Certified Organic. Named Best in the World from Organic Farming, Flos Olei 2015. 

Excellent with salads, pasta, and fish.
