New 100% Italian Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
I am extremely lucky and proud to be associated with and work within the brand of ‘Filippo Berio’. I use the complete range of olive oils including the delicious regional ‘Gran Cru‘ range within my demos, daily cooking and of course my sell out supper clubs. Now for a little history and news!
Filippo Berio, of Lucca, Tuscany, has been dedicated to Olive Oil since the 1800s when Filippo Berio himself made his Olive Oil famous throughout Italy. With its iconic green bottles and gold labels, Filippo Berio has been the UK’s favourite Olive Oil for over 30 years. Such has been the demand for Filippo Berio, not only in the UK but also across the world, that its famous Extra Virgin Olive Oil blend includes Olive Oils sourced from throughout the Mediterranean.
But now, by popular demand, Filippo Berio has introduced ‘100% Italian’, a unique blend of the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oils sourced by Filippo Berio’s internationally acclaimed experts, only from Italy.
In a simple but elegant variation of the iconic Filippo Berio label design, 100% Italian features the Italian tricolor. Perfect for food lovers and keen cooks, it comes in 750ml bottles. And, as they prefer their Extra Virgin in Italy, 100% Italian is an intense, full flavoured Olive Oil. It is spicy with a slightly bitter finish and with the deep aroma of green olives, tomatoes and artichokes – characteristic of the olive varietals in the blend; Nocellara, Biancolilla, Tondo, Coratina and Ogliarola. Perfect for drizzling, for dipping, for marinades and more, try drizzling it on a Florentine steak as they do in Tuscany, the home of Filippo Berio.
Walter Zanre´, Managing Director of Filippo Berio UK, said;
“With an ever-increasing demand for authentic Italian flavours and more and more interest in the provenance of our foods, Filippo Berio 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is an excellent and perfectly timed new addition to the Filippo Berio family. “Our 100% Italian offers the quality and authenticity of a wholly Italian Oil without the premium price tag of a single estate Italian Olive Oil.”
Filippo Berio 100% Italian is available now from ASDA, Morrisons, Ocado and EH Booths with a 750ml bottle costing £7.99.
