DOP Bella di Cerignola Olives from Puglia by Fratepietro Farmuser rating
Fratepietro Farm has taken its olive business to heart, since 1890, and produces both green and black Bella di Cerignola olives of exquisite quality. Bella di Cerignola olives are extremely delicate to harvest and the Fratepietro family exercises great care in monitoring all steps of production and ensuring these olives are among the best you can find on the world market. Unbruised, perfectly shaped Bella di Cerignola are picked in October, at ideal maturity, sorted by size, gently rinsed in a soda wash to take away any trace of bitterness, rinsed over and over and finally soaked in salt brine--the salt is the pure one from the Natural Preserve Margherita di Savoia Salt Planes.
