This medium fruity extra virgin olive oil in a polka dot terracotta bottle combines a superb Italian olive oil with a piece of Apulian artwork. The vibrant rainbow polka dots add a playful touch to your kitchen.
The medium fruity olive oil is made from peranzana olives, a cultivar that’s only grown in the Apulian region of Italy. Take a leaf out of Michelin-starred chef’s Felice Sgarra’s book, and use this olive oil to dress seafood dishes. The oil is fragrant with a very low acidity. It has notes of tomato, rocket and artichoke, which compliments very lightly cooked fresh fish and vegetable dishes.
Every Frantoio Muraglia terracotta bottle is handmade and hand-painted, so each bottle is unique. As well as being stunning to look at, the terracotta also helps to keep the olive oil tasting its best. It protects the oil from exposure to light – one of the biggest causes of deteriorating flavour in olive oil.
The making of decorative terracotta vases, jars and bottles in Apulia is a tradition going right back to ancient times. The region is rich in red clay, and artisans trained in traditional hand-crafting methods are still very much a part of the region’s culture.
Frantoio Muraglia are passionate about olives. Watching over their company is the oldest olive tree in their grove – a majestic Coratina olive tree that is at least 450 years old and still gives fruit. They’ve been growing and pressing olives in the same way for nearly five generations of the Muraglia family, and their extra virgin olive oils have won numerous awards.
