La Spineta Olive Oil

Bold, beautiful and unknown. A great value from Puglia.

Pugliese oils get little credit on the international oil scene. The region's reputation is that of a producer of affordable bulk oils. But hidden in the shadows of the huge industrial producers are artisans like the Pellegrino family. I visited their farm a couple of years ago, and I keep coming back to their full-flavored extra virgin olive oil again and again. There's a nose tingling grassiness that adds a depth of flavor to food. It's especially good in spicy pasta dishes or any place you want a really robust olive flavor.

The newest harvest, from fall 2014, smells like freshly cut grass, green banana, and tomato leaf. The flavor starts a bit soft and mellow but quickly builds to become quite bitter, like arugula, crescendoing to a spicy peppery finish.
