Planeta is a top-quality, unfiltered extra virgin olive oil that comes from the noted DOP Valle di Mazara. It is made from Nocellara del Belice, Biancolilla and Cerasuola olive varieties from a family grove in the Capparrina district of Menfi on the island of Sicily. The olives are hand-picked and processed with a cold, continuous cycle press in the grove within hours of their removal from the trees. The resulting Planeta Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a strong flavorand is full of layered nuance. It has low acidity, a smooth texture, and hints of green tomato, artichoke and lemon, with a spicy-peppery bold finish. It is ideal for salad dressings, seafood and desserts.
