Il Circolo Extra Vergin Olive Oil comes from olive trees that grow in Sicily, on the southern slopes of Monti Iblei at several hundred meters above sea level. From there you have a breathtaking view of the baroque city of Noto (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the southern tip of Sicily, where the Ionian Sea and the Strait of Sicily meet and the wind carries salts and minerals into the land. Il Circolo Extra Vergin Olive Oil is a certified organic product according to EU regulations, that ensure that olives are handpicked and get extracted cold (temperature below 24°C) on the same day. No pesticides are used in the overall process and the extraction processing is purely mechanical to make sure that there is no chemical residues. Every bottle of Il Circolo EVO can be traced back to its origin. Only when the bottles are sealed do they leave the mill and the region around Noto.
Il Circolo Extra Vergine Olive Oil is the ideal choice for connoisseurs who prefer olive oils with a forceful yet balanced aroma. In dishes with contrasting flavors, when the aromas intensify, you need an oil that contributes to the composition with its unique character: mixed salads (including fruit), soups (for example minestrone), vegetables (raw, stewed, cooked, roasted), bruschetta, pasta with fish and vegetables, oven-baked fish, shellfish, grilled meats and carpaccio. Due to the high heat resistance, it is ideal for roasting, grilling or cooking with a wok.
