Corto’s Flavorful Olive Oil
Corto olive oil is created much like fine wine, with olive oil as a craft to support chefs and inspire them to create better dishes through their premium, fresh, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Similar to incredible wines, different olive varietals impart their own distinct flavors. Balancing the art and science of olive oil, combined with extensive taste evaluating and measuring for each batch, results in extraordinary and artisanal olive oils. Corto’s milling philosophy is centered around freshness because olive oil is similar to fresh squeezed juice. Olives picked in the Fall at just the right time (green with a hint of violet) make fresher, higher quality oil. Truly 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the 500ml Single Bottle is named TRULY® because it’s authentic. Full-bodied and dynamic with bright floral notes that you can only achieve with fresh-squeezed olives harvested in their prime. Fresh oil is cold-extracted within hours at our state-of-the-art mill, then sealed in unique, oxygen-free packaging so it’ll taste just as fresh when it reaches your kitchen… and it does. Consider investing in the Truly 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a 3 liter-size FlavorLock Box as either a gift or as an investing in great cooking for the season. Corto’s packaging is 100% recyclable, lovely, and sturdy for gifting. Choose your favorite Corto products HERE and bon appetit!
