This particular olive oil is made from a variety of olive from Southern Italy. The olives are organically grown at Makura Farm located in the Carmel Mountains in Israel. The farm specializes in organic farming using techniques that rely on compost as a substitute for chemical fertilizers and biological pest control methods, deploying insects that are effective against pests. Makura Farms manages the entire olive oil production process, all the way from the tree to the press.
Coratina olive oil is the a variety with a dominant aroma coupled with low acidity. Its balanced suite of flavors is smooth and bold. Delicious in bruschetta with toasted bread, a rubbing of raw garlic and a sprinkle of salt. Try it over bitter lettuce (radicchio, arugula, chicory) and tomatoes with a balsamic vinegar, or by itself on gazpacho. Its perfect as a finishing oil for grilled or roasted meats, fish and poultry, in an herb marinade, or as a dressing for grilled vegetables.
Organic is more than a label to Makura Farms, it is quality and conviction for the use of nature's resources.
