North to South. Gently to Strongly fruity.
Olio&Olive's Tasting Kit turns consumers into connoisseurs of Italy's "Liquid Gold" by teaching them the secrets of
professional olive oil tasters. Extra virgin olive oil is like fine wine, so the Tasting Kit is arranged like a wine flight, from gently fruity to strongly fruity. Along the way, your taste buds will transport you from north to south on the Italian peninsula and even have you island hopping to boot.
Not just "olive oil"
Olio&Olive's sampler has five completely different hand-harvested extra virgin olive oils - different regions,
different indigenous olives. Some are monocultivars - oils made from just one olive. Others are blends. Some are for cooking, some are for finishing - putting on food after it's cooked. Some go well with fish, while others are better for sauce. Some taste like heirloom tomatoes, some like artichokes. They can be lush and voluptuous or light and herbal. You wouldn't serve the same wine with every dish, so why use the same olive oil?
