Region: Calabria Cultivars: Carolea, Ottobratica
Aspromontano: Greek for White Mountain, this oil was named after the Aspromonte Mountain Range where our olive groves are situated. We recommend this be the first oil you try before you branch out to the other olive oils in our family’s collection.
The perfect balance of the classic, Calabrian Carolea olive and our signature cultivar, Ottobratica. It’s flavourfully fun and very versatile!
