SINCERE, CHEERFUL OR SENSUAL? THE THREE PROFILES OF CRITELLI OIL
Sincere, Cheerful or Sensual? Tell me what flavor you like and I will tell you what your best extra-virgin olive oil is. We have created three profiles for our Italian Critelli brand, for three Italian regions recognized among the best oil producers. All oils are obtained directly from fresh olives and only by mechanical process. They are of different cultivar and therefore, as we like to say “character”. Critelli #1 is the result of Italian olives cultivated in Sila, where the air is the purest in Europe. It features a rich golden color with green hues, with and intense scent of olives and clear notes of artichoke. This is a versatile oil to be used with any type of raw vegetables or to drizzle over any cooked dish; That’s why it is named il SINCERO.
Our most “sunny” extra-virgin olive oil, il SOLARE, is our Critelli #2, with exuberant character, light golden color and olive-green reflections. It maintains the scent of fresh olive with herbaceous notes and a fruity flavor with hints of artichoke leaving an aftertaste of almond. Ideal for salads, pasta, soups and broths. Also recommended for cooking and frying.
Critelli #3, il SENSUALE with its lively and passionate personality encapsulates the scents of sensual Sicily. Energetic and elegant, this extra-virgin olive oil features a delicate scent of fresh olives with clear herbal hints while maintaining floral and almond-like notes. We would recommend pairing it with fish, seafood or grilled white meats.
