Rolando raves: "Vincenzo Paterno’ di Spedalotto’s Tonda Iblea is the best olive oil for tomatoes in the world! After March, when some extra virgin olive oils seem to lose their pungency, this oil becomes sweet and delicious just in time for the arrival of the first heirloom tomatoes. Drench dishes like Insalata Caprese and Panzanella. Go beyond the Italian border and use it on a Greek salad, gazpacho, and chimichurri! Over pour on pistachio gelato and finish with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt (AUTENTICO, pg. 334).
2021 Harvest Notes Made with the famous Tonda Iblea olives of the Chiaramonte Gulfi region, Spedalotto Tonda Iblea is a harmonious sensory experience: its green and ripe flavors are in perfect balance. It is soft with a fresh, green tomato aroma and fruity flavor, like taking a bite of a ripe tomato. A delightful complexity is extracted from this single varietal olive, a result of the craftsmanship that goes into the cultivation of rich soil. Spedalotto Tonda Iblea’s approachable flavor profile is easy to love!
