Trappeto di Caprafico EVOO by Chef Amy Riolo - 500 ml / 16.9 fl.oz.
Chef Amy Riolo is proud to introduce her first privately-labelled Italian extra - virgin olive oil from the world-renown Trappeto di Caprafico family-owned estate in Italy’s Abruzzo region. There the olives are grown and harvested in stone-covered terrain nestled in the idyllic valleys of the Maiella mountain range with sweeping views of bright flower gardens and lush orchards.
Her selection is an artisan- blend containing three cultivars – predominately the Gentile di Chieti and the Intosso (which is indigenous only to Abruzzo) varieties, with a touch of the Leccino variety as well. The careful blending of these olives lends sweet, harmonious, and fruity characteristics to the flavor of the oil. Cold-extraction and natural filtration combined with its’ very low-acidity rate make this oil the perfect choice for both ultimate flavor and health benefits.
The robust aroma and perfectly balanced taste of this extra-virgin olive oil, paired with its’ superior quality make it extremely popular with travelers on the culinary tours that Chef Amy leads to the region. The estate’s oils have won many Italian and international accolades.
This one-of-a-kind oil boasts notes of tomatoes, almonds, herbs, and artichokes. It pairs well with grilled and roasted meats, poultry and fish, tomato sauces, cooked vegetable dishes, salads, and a wide range of antipasti.
