DescriptionChef Amy Riolo is proud to introduce her first privately-labeled Italian extra – virgin olive oil from the world-renown Trappeto di Caprafico. The selection of olives includes three cultivars – predominately the Gentile di Chieti and the Intosso (which is indigenous only to Abruzzo) varieties, with a touch of the Leccino variety as well. The careful blending of these olives lends sweet, harmonious, and fruity characteristics to the flavor of the oil. Cold-extraction and natural filtration combined with its’ very low-acidity rate make this oil the perfect choice for both ultimate flavor and health benefits.
