Coratina variety olives are the ultimate expression of the land here in Apulia. They give a robust olive oil, as rustic and true as those who cultivate it. Our Intense Fruity is an olive oil at once spicy and with just a hint of astringency. Its unique characteristic is that it contains three times the antioxidant polyphenols of any other olive oil.
This oil enhances traditional dishes for the modern palate. It is perfect for raw vegetables, salads and vegetable soups.
A rich deep green with shades of gold, it is perfumed with irrepressible notes of dill, fennel, artichoke, pepper and hay. In the mouth, it unleashes a riot of vegetable tones; powerful, rich, cut through with phenols perfectly integrated into its structure – a wonderfully balanced taste. Imposing, its closing notes are deliciously spicy and it has a long finish of vegetable tones.
“CORATINA IS THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSION OF A LAND OF GREAT OLIVE OILS. POWERFUL. ASTONISHING. DOWN TO EARTH. AUTHENTIC. I’m grateful to Savino Muraglia because he has managed to restore dignity to this cultivar, which reflects so many aspects linked to a people and their land, and which therefore cannot but be spicy with a bitter overtone at the same time. It is characterised in that it contains three times the antioxidant poliphenols of any other variety of olive oil. I MUST ADMIT THAT I WOULD FIND IT HARD TO COOK ANYTHING WITHOUT THIS OLIVE OIL IN MY KITCHEN.
When I think of coratina I recall my grandmother’s bread served “all’acquasale”. Stale bread soaked in cold water, salt and a lot of fresh vegetables. That’s when you realise that coratina can introduce modern palates to old dishes.
RAW VEGETABLES AND SALADS ARE PERFECT, BUT LEGUME SOUPS ARE IN A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN”
