Terraliva's EVO Oil: Territory and Attention
Terraliva's Oil: Territory and Attention
Care, precision and dedication are the first words that jumped into our minds upon seeing the bottles of Terraliva Olio, all concepts that are then reflected in the taste: a truly top-notch product.
Evidence of this are the awards in the national and international field now difficult to count, which come from the most prestigious competitions in the sector such as the 97 points Flos Olei 2024 , the 5 drops Bibenda 2023 and the Three Leaves + Special Award La Stella from Gambero Rosso in 2023.
The results achieved are the consequence of a mix between the peculiarities of the territory and the mastery of the work, dictated by the competent and passion-filled management of the Cavarra family.
The olive groves are located at an altitude of 700 meters in the province of Syracuse, on volcanic soils in an area endowed with great temperature range. The latter characteristic, just as it happens in wine, allows products derived from the surrounding environment (in this case the oil) to give rise to a broader and more complex aromatic spectrum.
On tasting, the oil arrives well present, loaded in scents, with a taste that has a pleasantly spicy and bitterish side, but also leaves room for more varietal notes as per the characteristic of any good Sicilian oil.
The cultivars available from us are Tonda Iblea and Nocellara Etnea, with the former having a slightly higher intensity.
In the Tonda Iblea oil the first flavor that arrives is that of tomato , accompanied by wild almond and as anticipated a pleasant bitter and spicy texture
Nocellara Etnea Oil, on the other hand, has a more herbaceous touch.
A product that therefore has great versatility, suitable for both structured and more delicate dishes, really good even on pizza.
The company also works in a certified sustainable way, with Cherubino oil being a Slow Food Presidium for several years now.

Vines have been cultivated in the Lagoon for 2500 years, in large vegetable gardens, vineyards and orchards. If the doges drank ‘dorona’, a grape of the Trebbiano and Garganega family, the Venetian living in the Republic of the Serenissima had at his disposal the pure wines of Romania, Candia, Malvasia, Ribolla and Trebbiano itself.
The place to meet and sell the wines were the bàcari (still called it is so today). These are historical structures that still exist in the city, similar to an ancient osteria. In the history of Venice, other places were used for the sale of wine, both wholesale and retail: such as the stazi of San Marco’s and Rialto (places where the gondolas parked). Even in Piazza San Marco, wine merchants arrived in Venice to sell their barrels of wine. To keep it cool, they would move the barrels to keep them in the shade (“ombra”) of the Campanile, hence the wine glass was called “ombra”.
Wine and osterie become products and places that, in their own way, enter into the history of the Serenissima in the 1600s.
A novel that catapults us into the Venice of the doges. Masterful brushstrokes to paint a world, with details that have a taste of topicality.
