Coratina olives are widely grown in the southern region of Puglia in Italy. This variety is known for producing an oil that is robust and flavorful, with a fruity aroma and a slightly bitter taste. The olives are typically harvested when green and unripe to produce a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil rich in polyphenols, which have been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation and lowering the risk of heart disease.

Did you know?

Crafting an award-winning olive oil takes determination, skill and obsessive attention to detail. Every stage of the process, from harvest to bottle, must be perfectly managed to produce one of the world’s best olive oils.



Every good olive oil needs to have the aroma of fresh fruit. Olives are fruits, after all. Award-winning extra virgin olive oils smell fresh and fruity.



Bitterness indicates the presence of health-promoting compounds like polyphenols and adds complexity and balance to the flavor profile.



Pungency is that peppery sensation on the throat caused by the healthy phenolic compounds in fresh, high-quality olive oils.



The perfect balance of fruity, bitter and pungent notes indicates a high-quality oil that can elevate the flavors of any dish.



Exceptional extra virgin olive oils send us on an olfactory and gustatory journey through a complex bouquet of pleasing sensations.



The lingering taste and aroma of well-crafted olive oils give the taster time to reflect on the fruity notes and complex subtleties.
