La Spineta Olive Oil

On sale! 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 2013, smells like warm bread (like our paesano) and freshly cut grass. The flavor spreads quickly across the tongue with a pleasant bitterness and a powerful peppery kick.
