Colavita Fruttato Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pressed from specially selected, young olives that are harvested before peak ripeness. The resulting oil retains the robust taste and enticing aroma of the olive fruit. Fruttato, the Italian word describing this oil's character, means fruity. This oil's bold flavor will enhance any dish. Use it as a finishing oil to best preserve the distinct flavor. The intense flavor will mellow every so slightly when the oil is used to roast, grill or saute.
This is our playful version of a BLT.
