The previous reviews say it all! I’ve been ordering these EVOOs from Cinzia since I first tasted them in Puglia several years ago. The trees are stunning & lovingly cared for. Every time I open a bottle (at least once a day), I am reminded of the day that I met these beautiful trees and first tasted these oils. They don’t taste like anything I’d ever used before! I use them on almost everything, from humble avocado toast to all manner of vegetables and fish. They elevate everything they touch! They make wonderful presents for my very favorite people, when I can bear to part with a bottle, and my friends feel so special when I serve it at the table for an extra drizzle.

I have been ordering this Olive Oil for years. After having the privilege of Learning about Extra Virgin Olive from Cinzia you are never the same. What I love about what I learned is that I can apply it to any olive oil I buy. Having this olive oil really helps you set a bar for quality by which all others can be compared. The taste of this is so well balanced and it makes everything I use it on that much better, not to mention you are getting all of the nutritional benefits. Healthy and so incredibly delicious. If you want to know what real quality extra virgin olive is – get this and you will forever be changed.

I’ve ordered Cinzia’s oils for the first time this year. It has been a wonderful surprise. I am not new to this kind of high-end olive oils, but both the Green Season and the Equilibrium far exceeded my expectations. I like them so much that I invited a friend/oil expert over for lunch the other day to try my new oils. He brought three oils that he considers among the best he ever had: one from Sicily (a super high-end oil produced in very small quantities) and two from Australia. So just for fun we did a blind test (with the help of a good baguette and some parmesan cheese and prosciutto di Parma) of his oils vs the Green Season and the Equilibrium. They were all wonderful but in the end Green Season came out first, Equilibrium second, and the Sicilian oil third (although it was close to Equilibrium in taste). It’s a matter of taste, but I slightly prefer Green Season for its slightly more pronounced bitterness. But Equilibrium is superb for certain applications. For instance, my wife and I did our best pesto genovese ever with it, using our own basil.

Dear Jim and Cheryl thank you so much for posting your review and for sharing the information about my extra virgin olive oils with your dear friends. And I am so happy to read that you use Equilibrium for cooking as it is so important for our health to cook with a healthy lipid, as I teach in my olive oil tastings. I am really impressed with all the beautiful and certainly delicious foods you have been making in the past months with my olive oils!

Like the Green Season Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the Equilibrium Extra Virgin Olive Oil exhibits all of the characteristics of an excellent EVOO – peppery on the back of the tongue, the catch in the throat and so forth. It is not quite as tannic and, therefore, not as bitter as the Green Season. It is a little more subtle. We use it for cooking (indeed our sablefish tonight will be cooked in it), on toast and for salads. This year, we will go through a case of Equilibrium in addition to the two cases of Green Season. Its antioxidant levels seem to be very high. It’s packaging, like Green Season’s packaging, is designed to minimize the deterioration of the EVOO by exposure to air and light. The bottom line is if we had never been introduced to Green Season, this would be our favorite EVOO by far. As it is, it is our second favorite and it is only a little behind Green Season which is our favorite. We are proud to note that several of our friends have taken to ordering EVOO from Cinzia – some of whom did a Skype-tasting with her and some of whom did not. All are now devotees and understand why one wants really fine EVOO for everything.

thank you so much for your beautiful review and for sharing your secret!
Also, thank you so much for sharing the information about my olive oil among your friends.
I am so happy that you still remember that memorable experience when we first met in Puglia and I took you to those magic ancient olive trees. It is so important that the olives never touch the ground during the harvest time so we don’t use nets and pick olives from the trees. It is a joy that you appreciate all the work that is behind that delicious and super rich in polyphenols olive oil.
My purpose is to spread the joy of eating healthy and sustainable food that makes us healthier and happier!
I have been ordering this very special olive oil from Cinzia for a few years. I must say, this olive oil makes everything I cook and prepare more delicious. Here’s a secret: after I pour the oil from the measuring spoon or cup, I lick the measurement because the taste is divine, and, frankly, I don’t want to waste even a drop. ( then the measurements are sterilized)
Also, I have visited the olive grove where these olives are so carefully and lovingly removed from the absolutely gorgeous and ancient trees. These olives do not touch the ground. Oh no. Everything is done mindfully and artistically. Cinzia has a high standard, and is very particular. ( in a good way) . Everything she chooses is the highest quality.
We now have a group of a half a dozen or more who order from Cinzia once or twice a year. And, that is another benefit: when these cases arrive, all beautifully and carefully wrapped, of course, I feel as though it’s Christmas. I fill with excitement, and I am ready for my next delicious menu
