    Initially I tried this Olive Oil in Sicily & fell in LOVE with it's intense olive-peppery flavor! Alma Gourmet seems to be the only Stateside source for this product. For years Letizia has been my only choice when an ultra-fine finishing oil is needed! It also makes a great gift... I buy it by the case!!!
