L'Olio di Felice Garibaldi Ogliarola Monocultivar Extra Virgin Olive Oil was first made in honor of Felice Garibaldi, brother of the "Hero of the Two Worlds" and a prominent entrepreneur in the oil production business. In 1835, Garibaldi realized the benefits of distinguishing and selecting trees by species, of harvesting the fruit separately and of not mixing the various qualities in the oil production phase: this approach was revolutionary for its time, and lay the foundations for a historic change that still reaps benefits today.
"L'olio di Felice Garibaldi" is a monocultivar oil that boasts Slow Food features; it is produced from 100% Ogliarola Olive Oil (Cima di Bitonto), and is harvested directly from the plant and then crushed within 12 hours of harvesting in the company's mill.
Recommendations for use: "Felice Garibaldi" oil is characterized by a delicate taste and is perfect if used uncooked to enhance the taste and the scent of any kind of food. It is ideal on raw, roasted or steamed fish, crustaceans and molluscs, and hence for hors d’oeuvres, delicious first courses, carpaccio meat/fish and boiled vegetables.
