The mountain olive Tonda Iblea from Monte Iblei in south-eastern Sicily is appreciated by connoisseurs as one of the most intense olive varieties in Italy. Our organic olive oil DOP Monti Iblei, made exclusively from this one olive variety, has won international awards time and again. For the perfect end result, the still semi-ripe green olives must be carefully picked by hand from a steeply sloped crop location. They are then washed and processed into grassy green olive oil in hydraulic presses within a few hours. The naturally cloudy olive oil is then filtered. It has been filled with the IGP and DOP seals, the highest award for regionality and quality for food in Italy.

This intense olive oil combines various flavours in perfect harmony: a hint of green apple and pear, a hint of basil, the scent of freshly cut grass and bitters of celery and artichoke. The spicy, green-peppery aftertaste lingers for a long time.
With this olive oil, you can refine your favourite dishes in no time at all. Make yourself an orange and fennel salad, for example. Or try the Monte Iblei Organic DOP Oil together with a piece of pecorino cheese. It is also ideal for drizzling on grilled tuna with fresh lemon juice and oregano.
