The Coratina is a beautiful olive oil with floral and fruity notes and a creamy mouthfeel. It is lively, robust, with rich aroma and flavor. There is distinct pungency and bitterness which are extremely well balanced with a peppery finish and lingering spiciness. It has forward notes of green almond, herb and red apple.
With a much more olive forward flavor and spicy finish, this oil is perfect for drizzling at the finish for a more intense and singular taste sensation. Generously drizzle on your favorite pasta dishes. Incredible on fresh fruit salads, especially watermelon. Baste on grilled fish, seafood, and vegetables. Makes a great butter replacement too.

Thanks to its status as a spotlight food in the Mediterranean diet, and thanks to extensive research on its unique phytonutrient composition, olive oil has become a legendary culinary oil with very difficult to match health benefits.
Polyphenols have been shown to function as both antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory nutrients in the body. The very number and variety of polyphenols in olive oil helps explain the unique health benefits of this culinary oil. Because of the high polyphenol levels, as little as 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil per day have been shown to be associated with significant anti-inflammatory benefits.
