Cardum extra virgin olive oil - 3X500ML bottles

The oliveti -- olive groves -- that produce award-winning Cardum extra virgin olive oil are in the hills of the island of Sardinia, 120 miles west of the Italian mainland.

Shepherds live in the hills; sheep graze in the oliveti. Their milk becomes piquant pecorino-romano cheese -- pecorino means "from sheep." Cardum pairs well with it. Sardinian mountain cuisine is spit-roasted pork and lamb, so Cardum pairs well with that, too. And since Sardinia is an island, Cardum and fish and seafood are a natural combination. In fact, sardines are named after the island.

Of the approximately three dozen olives indigenous to Sardinia, Bosana Nera di Gonnos and Tonda di Cagliari have been specially selected for Cardum. The meanings of Bosana and Gonnos are obscure, but the Nera tells us that they are black. "Tonda" means "round," as in "rotonda." Cagliari is the name of the 3,000-year-old seaport town at the southernmost tip of Sardinia.

Every year, from October to December, the olives are harvested by hand and immediately sent through a traditional cold stone press. This produces an oil with a deep smell of fruit and cardoon. The finish is slightly biting with a hint of agreeable bitterness, a whiff of fresh oregano. Cardum's elusively haunting taste will delight your guests -- and leave them wondering just what your secret is.
