Fratelli Colletti produces and imports the finest Sicilian Olive Oil from Caltabellotta Sicily.
What makes our oil so good?
It is a mono cultivar oil produced from the Busionetta olive, aka the "Biancollilla di Caltabellotta"
It is a true Early Harvest Oil. Our limited production allows us to produce our entire years harvest from olives picked the first 2 weeks of the season. While larger producers are still harvesting olives through the end of November - adding late harvest oil to the early, our olives have already been processed, packed and shipped.
We do sell a limited amount of our olive oil in bulk to a select few olive oil bars. One of our olive oil bar customers who received an early tin of this year's harvest did not even put it on his shelf, but kept it for personal use and gifts for friends and family. That's saying something! Contact us for pricing and availability.
Biancollilla di Caltabellotta
Harvested early. Always by hand.
Selected for the 2012 harvest
The oil is unfiltered with a vivid green color and an elegant scent. The taste is delicate with notes of freshly cut grass, a hint of artichoke and unripe tomatoes and a light spicy finish.
Caltabellotta is famous throughout Italy for its oil. Sicilian olive oil is the best in the world but the olives grown around the mountain village of Caltabellotta produce the best of the best. Buyers from all over Italy come to Caltabellotta to buy oil. It is true that the best olive oil never leaves Italy, until now…
Our 2011 harvest has been awarded a Silver Medal at the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition.
