DOP Terra di Bari Castel del Monte Extra Virgin Olive Oil made with olives surrounding the Castel del Monte near Bari, “Fruttato Intenso”

Galantino’s intensely fruity DOP Terra di Bari – Castel del Monte Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced by cold extraction only from olives hand-picked in the region north of Bari. Towns in this rural area include Bisceglie, Andria, Trani, Corato and Barletta. The main olive varietal is Coratina (80%) with other olives native to the region comprising the remainder. An independent certification organization guarantees its origin, typicality, quality and adherence to strict specifications. It is green in color with yellow reflections. Its full fruit character is complemented by lingering bitter and spicy notes that are typical of southern Italian olive oils.

Harvest takes place prior to December 31st, and the olives are pressed within 24 hours of picking using a traditional granite mill. Use it as you would any fine EVOO, as a seasoning for vegetables, drizzled over legumes, added to soups, atop bruschetta, or for preparing grilled meats.

Discover the passion of the Galantino Family, a family that has been masters of olive oil since 1926. They only select the best olives from their groves near Bari (Apulia), near the Adriatic cost, a region that produces more olives than anywhere else in the world. Even today, in this era of automation, all of Galantino’s Ogliarola and Coratina olives are hand-harvested the traditional way, by shaking the branches of the olive trees so that the olives fall gently onto canvas traps. In another nod to tradition, Galantino mills their olives with traditional granite millstones. Through cold extraction and strict quality testing, Galantino ensures that their extra virgin olive oil is consistently the best. With artistic packaging and fresh and smooth qualities, Galantino oils have won the most important international awards and accolades.
