Leaving for the first time the iridescence of colors, Frantoio Muraglia explores the white lines and imprint in thei ceramic jars a new unique and iconographic design, based on the geometric dichotomies of the Salento artist Pierpaolo Gaballo.
The Man with the Hat: The Man with the Hat is a metaphorical tribute to Savino Muraglia Senior, the man who inherited those 40 hectares of olive trees whose branches kissed the sky of the Alta Murgia. That man with the hat, who decided not to listen to those who tried to dissuade him from his dream: to create a Frantoio that should have handed down - over the centuries - the aromas, flavors and excellence of the Apulian know-how.
HOW TO USE IT
Its intense flavour will work wonders on a simple tomato bruschetta or to finish a soup.
WHY WE LOVE IT
The Coratina variety is the perfect expression of the land of Apulia: robust, rustic, spicy with the unique characteristic of having three times the antioxidant polyphenols of any other olive oil. One of a kind.
100% cold pressed Coratina olives.
Affectionately known as capatosta, a nickname that in Italian means stubborn as a mule, the Muraglia family has been looking after the land and its olive trees for over five generations, down to the tiniest detail. We not only visited their land and mill during harvest, but also the nearby workshop where the beautiful ceramic orci (the bottles) are handmade and painted. Everything at Frantoio Muraglia is state of the art, and this is without a doubt a Gold Beetle Certified™ product.
