Coratina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

$25.00

Stock Status

Our Signature 375 ml size is no longer produced by the glass maker, in addition, I determined that this year's Coratina, while verifiably extra virgin in grade, did not meet our "gold medal-worthy" standard. We'll leave this item here so that you can ask to be notified about re-stocking when the 2024 crop becomes available holiday 2024 / early 2025.

Flavor & Enjoyment

Rich floral cherry aroma with deep bitter and pungent flavors are the hallmark of this oil. If you enjoy black coffee, dark chocolate, or IPA beer, you’ll appreciate this oil, and if you salt your food, you’ll find that sodium neutralizes bitterness. This is an excellent olive oil choice for strong flavored foods.

About this Variety

Our choice for a robust intensity olive oil unfailingly turns to the Coratina, a variety which originates in Corato, Puglia. Irrigation schedules, harvest timing, and milling style influence both the character and intensity of an olive’s flavor, however, the inherent attributes of an olive’s genetic make up play a significant part, too. Coratina has a naturally high level of biophenols, the micronutrients with antioxidant properties for which all olives are known, and these imbue the fruit with a natural bitterness and pungency. By the way, if you were a fan of Lucero's Woodson Blend EVOO from the old days, you'll like Lucero Coratina EVOO as it was an important part of the formula.

Pungent! As it should be

We have been very pleased with this product using it only to flavor items post-cooking, as well as a dipping oil for good breads. The healthy reasons one should ‘eat’ olive oil daily is right here in this bottle. We are happy to be back to buying oil from Lucero once again.
