100% Ortice olives from 1400 trees averaging 65 years in age. Hand harvested and pressed within hours ensuring low free acidity and high levels of Vitamin A and antioxidants. Green-gold color, balanced and very fresh tasting. A delicious olive oil, one of the best of the year for our selection.

Smells and tastes like a fresh bowl of radishes, lettuce and green olives. Flavors of green tomato, green almonds, lettuce and apple follow on the palate. Ortice was considered one of the greatest oils in Roman times. An incredible olive oil, one of our best, highly recommended. It shows very well when served raw over mushroom risotto and broiled halibut.

 

 

 
 

 

The Ortice variety was held in the highest regard during the Roman times and produced the finest olive oils in the Mediterranean. It is highly aromatic and full of fresh vegetable aromas and flavors of artichoke, radish, and tomato leaf.  Alberto Romano olive oils are stunning and are not to be missed, they are like tasting ancient history, a modern evolution of the best oils produced in Campania 1000 years ago. Farmed organic.
