Dell'Orto Piccant (hot) Olive Oils are sold only in dark bottles, and labeled with "harvest year" and "best if used by date" for freshness. The 2016 harvest date has a best if used by date of 31 July 2018.
The oil is a combination of extra virgin olive oil infused with hot red chili peppers...always made with fresh ingredients and never artificially flavored. For those who like things 'piccante' (hot & spicy), the oil has an extraordinary taste with a smooth kick. Use on meats, chicken, fish, pasta, salads, vegetables, soups, or with any dish where a hot spicy taste is desired.
