Located in the relatively little-known region of Basilicata, the instep of the Italian boot, Frantoio Oleario Pace was recognized in July, 2013 by Eurispes, a highly-regarded independent research institute, as one of the top 100 agricultural companies in Italy. And they deserve it, to judge from their oils. Pace makes a range of styles and flavor profiles, from fruttato e dolce ("sweet & fruity") made from a blend of ogliarola, maiatica, leccino, and peranzana cultivars, to a piccante leggero (“spicy light” – NOT to be confused with “light” or “extra-light” olive oil sold in North America, which is low-grade refined oil!!) extracted from the redoubtable coratina, to oils that are unfiltered, organic, or made from de-pitted olives. All crisp, fresh, well-made oils that deliver - wonder of wonders! - precisely what’s written on their labels. See their well-designed website in English, French and German as well as Italian, for much more info.
