Colline Salernitane extra virgin olive oil is milled from olives grown in the hills around the city of Salerno in Campania.
Colline Salernitane is a PDO (protected denomination of origin) olive oil made with at least 65% Rotondella, Frantoio, Carapellese and Nostrale olive varieties, while the remainder comes from Ogliarola, Leccino and other locally grown cultivars.
Colline Salernitane varies in colour from yellow to green, with a clear bitter note. However, this extra virgin olive oil is prized when it’s young, before the flavour has started to change.
It offers a fruity green aroma that evokes cut-grass and green tomatoes and is recommended on fresh salads, grilled fish, in vegetable soups and pasta dishes.
Good to know: Colline Salernitane extra virgin olive oil received 2 stars from Great Taste Awards 2014 in London!
