Because it so tasty. Originally only used for salad oils and dipping.
But it is equally delicious as a marinade base and cooking in general.
It is our go to olive oil for all purposes. At snack time 4pm, I love it drizzled on thinly sliced French baguette. Nice lead in to cocktail hour. Even more, I admire the back story of where and how this oil is created. Be sure to watch the video and read the insert that comes with each bottle.
Fabulous Olive Oil with a rich deep flavor!
Honestly, All You Need To Know IS
All you need to know is that two cousins residing on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean (Tony...a successful restauranteur here in Denver, CO, and Aldo...at the Olive Press in Abruzzo, Italy) are responsible for bringing this gift to the US. Some of the well-traveled know about that Abruzzo region, which historically has only ever produced enough olive oil for people in nearby villages like Lanciano, Casoli & Ortona to eat and drink (that's right, Drink, it's that good). When I visited the region, I couldn't find anyone using butter. They put this beautiful, nutritious, thick, smooth, syrupy, almost seaweed green olive oil on everything. They cooked with it. Many locals consumed a shot of it per day just for their health, so I tried it. That's the moment I realized I had never actually HAD olive oil before. (The stuff at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's isn't even CLOSE. And when I tried a few different imported boutique brands via Amazon, it was the same deal: People selling fancy pictures of their bottles...with the same ordinary, often metallic-tasting stuff inside. What a joke!) So when I heard that oil from an olive press in Abruzzo was being imported directly here to Denver, I knew I might have the chance to taste - and feel - that once more. I ordered 1 bottle and, yep, that's the stuff! I ordered 10 more and shipped to family, friends (and 1 important Client) all around the country. OliAMO even makes everything I cook taste better!
This EVOO is truly a notch above the rest. It tastes very smooth, zero bitterness & rich in flavor. You won't be disappointed !!!! Finished my first bottle and ordering more today :)
You HAVE to try this olive oil! It's one of the best olive oils I've tried and is perfect for salads, dipping bread, on pasta...you name it. I'll definitely be buying more of this and gifting some to friends & family!
