The Old-World, Rustic Taste of Sicily
Mantova Pitted Castelvetrano Olives are all-natural, non-GMO, high-quality Castelvetrano olives, also known as Nocellara del Belice olives, cultivated and hand-picked from the sunny, arid olive groves of the Valle del Belice of Sicily, Italy — a region celebrated for its unique, exquisite olive varietals. In a freshly preserved in a mild brine, our Castelvetrano Olives come already pitted and are ready-to-eat. With a buttery, mildly delicate flavor with a floral undertone, their firm, meaty texture and vibrantly green hue make them a tasty snack. Use them to complement cured meats, fresh cheeses, and dried fruits, and make charcuterie boards, antipasto platters, and apertivi. Drop them into a cocktail or a martini. Serve them together with oven-roasted or grilled chicken, pork, rabbit, and seafood. Toss them in salads, sauces, and dips. Add them to sandwiches, wraps, and panini. Put them on bruschetta, pizza, focaccia.
Since our Pitted Castelvetrano Olives contain monosaturated fatty acids, they are a heart-healthy, cholesterol-free source of fat, making them beneficial for the prevention of atherosclerotic plaque formation and cardiovascular pathologies. They are also both rich in polyphenols and vitamin E, anti-inflammatory antioxidants that protect the body from oxidative stress and safeguard cells against free radicals. That said, our Pitted Castelvetrano Olives are not only delicious but also healthy and suitable for most diets.
No matter how you choose to enjoy them, the buttery, subtle flavor, firm texture, and vibrant green color of our Pitted Castelvetrano Olives will surely satisfy you! Buon appetito!
