Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We were at a restaurant that served us this oil. It was so good that we asked the waiter what kind of olive oil it was, and happily found it on Amazon. I'm not a good olive-oil connoisseur, but I've had enough varieties to know that I like this the best for flavoring salads and breads.
Excellent oil. I've become leery of imported oil - except from Chile - and have become a fan of this brand. It's just as good as any that I have ever bought and better than most. I toast sourdough bread for breakfast to eat with my eggs and liberally sprinkle this on the toast plus a grind of black pepper, and dig in. Health food never tasted so good. Highly recommended.
The aroma is delicious, but the flavor is nowhere near what I've tasted before. This is the third time in a row that I buy Corto oil and doesn't taste like before. I don't know if this is a manufacturing or mishandling issue.... but I'm disappointed.
