Moulin des Ombres Olive OilRegular price $38.00
Situated on the land surrounding Chateau Montfrin in the Côtes du Rhône, the Moulin des Ombres (“Mill of Shadows”) produces this aromatic French oil from organic Kappa and Rosciola olives. Bright and balanced, the Moulin presents tart apple and green tomato notes, making it one of our favorite summertime oils; try it over grilled eggplant and bitter greens, or atop your favorite young goat cheese.
Biancolilla Centinara Olive OilRegular price $38.00
Master botanist Pasquale Marino discovered a small grove of nearly-extinct Biancolilla Centinara olives on the Bona Fortuna farm in Sicily, and set about reviving them. The result is an oil with a delicate nose of wild herbs and a robust green body, reminiscent of tomato leaf and grilled artichoke. Perfectly suited to finish richer dishes — think mushroom pasta or polenta and braised short rib — or mixed with a bit of pepperoncini honey for dipping.
Formaggi Aresu GranaresuRegular price $9.50
Aged for one year, this mixed-milked sheep and cow cheese has flavors that land somewhere between a bright, mouthwatering pecorino and a rich robust asiago—with a creamy-but-toothsome texture that will convince even the pickiest of cheese eaters that there's more to life than just cheddar. Try it melted on a grilled cheese or straight off the block as a next-level midnight snack
Caseficio Murtas LentischioRegular price $9.50
Produced with goat's milk singularly sourced from the herb-laden hills of Gerrei in south-eastern Sardinia, the subtle flavors of Lentischio are unmistakably fragrant and floral; notes of citrus and artichoke hide within the dense, crumbly paste of this truly exceptional aged caprino: the perfect cheese for lovers of Sardinian pecorinos looking to branch into new and exciting territory.
Pedroni PGI Balsamic Vinegar Tradizionale "Nero"Regular price $32.00
In the 1860s, cowherd Giuseppe Pedroni used his lottery winnings to buy several farms and renovate an old benedictine monastery into a roadside tavern, where he began producing balsamic vinegar using his empty Marsala and beer barrels.
Six generations later, Giuseppe III carries on his namesake and family's legacy, hosting visitors to the tavern and making balsamic according to traditional methods. Trebbiano di Spagna and Ruggine grape varieties are pressed, cooked, fermented, and then aged in a series of barrels made of different types of wood, a process referred to as a 'battery.' This resulting vinegar is slightly syrupy, well-balanced and sweet with a distinctive earthy richness. Try it drizzled over Bea pasta, tossed into a risotto, or served simply on pieces of Parmigiano Reggiano.
Monastero Suore Cistercensi Trappiste Olive OilRegular price $45.00
Casa Madaio Pecorino CalcagnoRegular price $36.00
Condimela Apple VinegarRegular price $27.00
While this vinegar is barrel-aged over the course of one year in a process that mirrors the aging process of Balsamic vinegar, this vinegar is made from organic apples. Italy's northern regions are well known as a prominent and traditional apple-growing region within Europe, so its only natural that apples eventually found their way into one of Italy's most renowned culinary products. The resulting vinegar is sweet but not cloying with a distinct baked apple aroma.
Fontina Val D'Aosta DOPRegular price $28.00
The classic Italian melting cheese. Fontina holds it out while standing apart from the swiss and french greats. Versatile and workable, this cheese holds its own on the cheeseplate as well with distinct notes of mushroom and cured meat.
Cravero Parmigiano ReggianoRegular price $30.00
Giorgio Cravero and his family have been aging wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano in their caves since 1855. Each wheel arrives in the Piedmont at a year of age and is flipped every two weeks to ensure a smooth texture with delicate crystals throughout. Notes of sweet fresh cream give way to a robust, brothy finish. Pair with Prosecco and a drizzle of Villa Manadori aged Balsamic.
