What is PDO Olive Oil?

Dell'Orto's Mill is certified for the cultivation of PDO Olives.

Dell'Orto PDO Extra Virgin Oils are first cold press, all natural, authentic, unadulterated, great tasting, sold only in dark bottles or tins, and always labeled with “harvest year” AND “best if used by date” for freshness. The 2017/2018 harvest date has an acidity of 0.18 and a best if used by date of 31 December 2019”. The oil has a color ranging from green to straw yellow, a very fruity scent with rich green tones and hints of freshly cut grass. Dell’Orto is ideal for sautéing, as well as a dressing for vegetables, salads, pasta, soups, and dipping bread.

The certification for PDO extra virgin olive oil is obtained from a unique single selection of olives (Carpellese). The Italian Agricultural Ministry, in accordance with European Community regulations, guarantees and certifies the quality of the oils carrying its PDO seal. This seal denotes that the oil is made from olives that are typical of the region where the oil is derived from and that all the requirements of climate, soil, and variety of olives have met their high standards. PDO "Certification of Authenticity" is posted on our web site.
