Tucked into the hillside of Monte Samuel Pizzuto, Grottaglie, also known as "the city of ceramics," has been home to ceramicists for centuries. Surrounded by deep ravines and cool caves, the clayey earth of this charming Northern Puglian town has been worked by human hands since at least the Classical Age (8th-6th Century BC). Later settled by ancient Greeks and Romans, the charming town was put on the map for its ceramic production during the Middle Ages.

Offering powerfully balanced bitterness and pungency, this single-origin Italian olive oil shares the aroma of tomato, fresh grass, almond and artichoke.
A True Taste of Sicilian Heritage
Grown and bottled on La Furtuna Estate in the Sicani Mountain region, our Heritage Blend Sicilian extra virgin olive oil is one to remember. Persistent and harmonious, it hosts a soft flavor of fruity, golden notes with a nose of artichoke, green tomato and almond.
On the palate, this cold-extracted, high-quality olive oil is incredibly smooth and balanced with a medium spice. Take a teaspoon right out of the bottle, drizzle on a leafy salad, or pair with a Bona Furtuna Salt and Herb blend for an electrifying meat rub.
