Made with the zest of organic Calabrian bergamots (a cross between the pear lemon and the Seville orange) this oil is prepared by simultaneously crushing fresh organic bergamots with early harvest olives. Golden yellow in color with grass green undertones, this oil has a unique flowery citrus taste. It is a delightful accompaniment to seafood and is a wonderful addition to dressings, cooked vegetables and pastas. Its fragrance also enhances the aroma of desserts and biscuits.

For over 200 years, Principessa Marina Colonna's family has been producing oils on their estate in Martino, in southeastern Italy's unspoiled Molise region on the Adriatic coast. A family property, Colonna is well known for its extra virgin olive oils as well as special blends that are pressed with fragrant organic lemons, oranges, bergamots and tangerines. The family's 140 acres of groves cultivate 22 varieties of olives. Manually harvested when slightly under ripe, Colonna olives are processed and then milled on the same day. Each olive variety is harvested, processed, milled and cold pressed separately to ensure quality.
