It is not hyperbole to say that Frantoi Cutrera is the most awarded Italian olive oil brand. Having won hundreds of titles at olive oil competitions all over the world, Frantoi Cutrera is not just one of the best olive oil brands — it’s the best extra virgin olive oil. Their oil comes from olives grown on the island of Sicily, in the rocky terrain south of Mount Etna, which the Frantoi family have been farming since 1906.
Flavors of Sicily
The unique olive cultivars grown in Sicily impart the extra virgin olive oil with tasting notes of tomato and aromatic herbs. It is also not as peppery as mainland Italian olive oil. Flavor profiles of Frantoi oils range from fruity to grassy, and can be used for a variety of dishes, including salads, soups, and roasted meats.
