Titone Biologica DOP

Awarded Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the Year


Big news in the world of Extra Virgin Olive Oil!

Italian producer, Azienda Agricola Biologica Titone, has been awarded Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the Year by Marco Oreggio and his publication Flos Olei 2012, in an announcement made The Olive Oil Times. In a twist of dates, this award announced in October 2011, is for the Titone Biologica DOP 2010 bottling. If you’d like to taste such a notable award winner, you’ll find it at Olio2go. This is a terrific, organic-certified, olive oil from the Trapani area of Sicily.

Olio2go at Festa Italiana in DC on October 9. We had great fun sampling and tasting with festival guests. JoAnna is shown in these pictures. She helped out at the event and enjoyed speaking to the guests in Italian! We were very busy at the booth and served over 600 olive oil tastes!

Sampled at the show:

Santisi Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Sicily)

Rosselli del Turco Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP Chianti Classico (Tuscany)

Trappeto di Caprafico Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, DOP Colline Teatine (Abruzzo)

and the little gem, Livio Pesle Balsamic Vinegar Wine Jelly (Fruili Venezia Giulia)

We’re thrilled with today’s article in the Washington Post. Jane Black reveals the new Association 3E, Super Premium Olive Oil — and we have one at Olio2go. In fact, it’s selling quickly. It is Davide Borselli’s La Poderina Toscana.

For a Free Ranging discussion on olive oil, you may wish to read this. But we must warn you, we are not big fans of the fill-your-own stores. We believe in supporting the small olive farmer through sales of estate-bottled olive oil. Think about it, would you fill wine bottles from a tap at the store?
