2015 Harvest

TONDO is an incredible sensory experience: sweet, fruity and harmonious. Made with the famous Tonda Iblea olives of the Monti Iblei region, the oil is bright greenish gold in color.

The strong aroma of tomato leaf gives way to green, grassy and floral notes. In the mouth, it is like no other oil we have tasted: pure tomato flavor. In fact, the flavor of tomato is so overwhelming that it inspires entire feasts based on tomatoes and olive oil. Even savored all alone by the spoonful, this olive oil is addictive.

On the estate of Marchesi Achille Paterno’ di Spedalotto, there are 7,500 olive trees, all organically farmed and growing the unique Tonda Iblea olive. Harvesting is done entirely by hand before crushing in a nearby frantoio (olive mill). After careful decanting into stainless steel tanks, one month is allowed for settling, to ensure a beautifully clear oil.

Chiaramonte Gulfi is known in Sicily as il balcone della Sicilia (Sicily’s balcony) because of its high position atop the Monti Iblei ridge. The altitude and climate here guarantee a perfect environment for growing olives, and the area is now under the strict quality control laws of a Denominazione di Origine Protetta (D.O.P.), guaranteeing olive oil excellence year after year.

Region: Monti Iblei, Sicily.
Olive cultivar: 100% Tonda Iblea 
Decanted for 2 months, unfiltered
