Our 100% extra virgin olive oil is an authentically Italian product made by local farmers and artisans. It starts with the Coratina olives, a DOP olive cultivated in “Terra di Bari”. This variety is grown in an organic olive grove just outside of Bari, Puglia and owned by a close family friend of ours, and is exclusive to us. This particularly strong-tasting olive is cultivated with great care and in strict adherence to the Protected Designation of Origin guidelines (DOP). We are often in Italy when the olives are hand-picked and within hours, they are cold pressed delivering the purest quality possible. Extra virgin means the olive oil cannot have an acidity level that exceeds more than 1%. Ours has an acidity level between 0.24% to 0.27%. It's g olden green in colour, spicy and pungent and with a hint of fruit. Olive oil is integral to Italian cuisine and for us, it’s the soul and heart of everything we do. Every aspect of this olive oil is cared for; it’s the very definition of quality, above and beyond “extra virgin” or “DOP.” It’s this care and purity that we want to share with our guests at Terroni. Every dish begins or finishes with this olive oil.
