Family-owned by the Asaro Brothers Company in Partanna, Sicily, this brand has a long history that dates back in 1916. This oil is a first cold-pressed, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and it is also an early harvest (October), single-olive varietal (Nocellara del Belice), unfiltered oil. When the tins are first opened, the oil is cloudy with a green hue, herbaceous aroma and ‘pizzicante’ flavor.
The Partanna is freshly produced oil packed immediately after the first pressing in mid October. It is undecanted, therefore appearing even cloudier and greener, more herbacaceous and pizzicante in flavor. It is produced only once a year and like all genuine olive oil, its appearance in the tin is subject to changes and over the passing of a year its flavor becomes gradually mellower. It becomes clearer as the sediments drop to the bottom of the tin and adapts a golden hue. This is a great oil for dipping bread and everyday use.
