FRANTOIA Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For more than four generations, the Barbera family of Palermo, Sicily has been meticulously selecting the finest olives grown in the western Central Hills of Sicily, available each year to produce an assortment of extra virgin olive oils. The FRANTOIA oil is a blend of Biancolilla, Cerasuola and Nocellara olive varieties from the surrounding areas of Partanna, Castelvetrano, Ribera, Sciacca and Trabia. FRANTOIA is a top-quality virgin olive oil obtained by cold extraction in traditional oil-presses. Handpicked from the trees, the olives are sent daily to the olive press, where the olives are carefully crushed by traditional granite grinders. A cold centrifuge system is used for extraction guaranteeing maximum hygiene. Tradition and advance technology are joined together in the production of this elegant full bodied gold green olive oil. What makes FRANTOIA fine extra virgin olive oil quite different from the other oils and olive oil is its distinct personality: the typical aroma, reminiscent of fresh olives, the golden greenish color, its thin texture and rich delicate fruity flavor, loaded with olive notes and hints of herb that leave a pleasant aftertaste of sweet almonds. In order to appreciate olive oil at its best, we suggest using it raw on bread, fresh cheese, salad, vegetables, soups and all fish dishes.
