The oil color is bright (yellow with very little green overtones). The Gargiulo Sorrentolio Venus works well as a finishing oil in soups and with fresh salads like tomato or mozzarella. The oil would also work well with simple pasta dishes like parsley, red pepper flake and garlic or clam sauce. The only negative to the organic olive oil is that it’s slightly greasy on the palate with a bit of heaviness (in terms of mouth feel).
I like the Gargiulo Sorrentolio Venus organic extra vigin olive oil so much that it’s going to be my go to olive oil for holiday gifts (perfect for that person who’s just starting to appreciate fine olive oils). You can find the oil at the excellent online shop olio2go.com, run by a wonderful woman named Luanne!
