Bertarello Olive Oil

Beatrice Bertarello in her kitchen.

We visited Beatrice Bertarello at Casale di 
Bertarello, a 1700s farmhouse, an hour outside of Rome in the Viterbo countryside. The Bertarello family produces small batch fine olive oil from the 300 year old olive groves surrounding the property.

This high quality olive oil is picked and pressed within just six hours of harvesting and is imported directly from the Bertarello organic farm and estate.  Bertarello has an intense "herbaceous" fruity aroma and an unmistakable spicy bitter note, due to a high concentration of polyphenols which, in addition to enriching the taste, have important dietary qualities due to their antioxidant power. The harvest of these olives generally takes place during the first ten days of October, several days in advance of the traditional harvest. They are picked just before ripening and changing colour - which increases their antioxidant properties. This olive oil is an amazing addition to any dish or drizzled on salad or bread, and is recommended as more of a tasting oil than a cooking oil.
