Best tasting olive oil among more than 200 brands I have tried so far. This olive oil truly tastes like the one made by my auntie Nella at her place near Palermo, Sicily. I have been searching for an oil that would taste as good as hers for over 25 years and I just happily found Madre Sicilia Extra Virgin. This is an excellent quality oil, well-balanced, and has the distinctive strong, but no-bitter flavor of authentic Sicilian extra virgin olive oil. I highly recommend it for those who enjoy the real distinctive flavor of the olives; not just bland insipid oil. Use it over your salads, breads, pasta, and sauces. It will enhance the flavor of any of your dishes and take you on a trip to the rolling hills of the Sicilian countryside. The dark bottle protects the oil from sunlight to help maintain its freshness and flavor. Great find!
