An Olive Oil’s Aroma and Taste Say Kalamata
By FLORENCE FABRICANT Published: August 2, 2011
There is no mistaking which olives went into Amoretti’s new oil with the intense aroma and flavor of kalamata. Maral Barsoumian, an owner, said the company infuses Tunisian extra-virgin olive oil with concentrated kalamata essence derived from real olives. A drizzle on tomatoes, grilled fish, pasta or country bread adds a bold punch.
Amoretti Extra Virgin Kalamata Infused Olive Oil, organic and kosher, costs $26.99 for 16.9 ounces at amoretti.com and amazon.com, and $25.99 at Zabar’s.
