RARO, or "RARE", is a noble extra virgin olive oil created by pressing only the fruit of Ravece and Rotondella olives. Recognized by experts around the world as an extraordinary oil, RARO is a Denocciolato oil, meaning the olives are pressed only after the pits are removed. The 2015 harvest yields a full-bodied oil, lingering with a big peppery finish. Drizzle over steaks, soups, bean dishes and bitter greens - the subtle bitterness of the oil will bring out the true flavors of the foods.

100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Madonna dell'Olivo is the family estate of Antonino Mennella, a passionate young extra virgin olive oil producer from the Salerno area of Campania. A geologist by profession, Antonino inherited the family farm in 2003 and had to make a decision to sell the property, including 2000 centuries-old olive trees, or take charge of the business and aim at making a high-quality olive oil. How fortunate he chose the latter option!

Antonino uses advanced pressing and processing technology to provide a super extra virgin olive oil with double the average content of polyphenol antioxidants and an astoundingly low level of free oleic acid, almost the same level of freshness as an olive still on the tree.

RARO has a remarkably well balanced flavor profile and optimal health benefits.
