The Filippo Berio Limited Edition for the Festival

For this special occasion, Filippo Berio – the premium brand of the Group – has created a special limited edition tin for its 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, dedicated to Turandot, one of the most beloved masterpieces in Puccini’s operatic repertoire.

Filippo Berio 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is characterized by a fruity and lively taste, with notes of grass, artichoke, and ripe tomato, making it the perfect ally to enhance any dish, from those with robust flavors to soups and roasts.

The Filippo Berio 100% Italian limited edition tin – destined to become a true collector’s item due to its beauty and iconic nature – is available in a 1-liter format. It can be purchased at all Autogrill outlets starting from June 20th.

The Berio Method

Like all the Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the Filippo Berio range, this product is the result of skilled processing achieved through the Berio Method: a certified quality and guarantee process that selects only the best and healthiest olives, harvested at the right degree of ripeness and cold-pressed, coming from sustainable cultivations based on the principles of integrated agriculture.

The method is controlled at every stage and certified by SGS, an independent and authoritative external body, which ensures not only the qualitative characteristics of the product but also the environmental sustainability throughout the entire supply chain.

By entering the production batch on the website, numerous useful pieces of information can be discovered, such as the production date, predominant cultivars used, the origin of the olives, and the place of milling, in addition to the organoleptic and sensory profile. This includes the analyses carried out for each bottle showing the individual quality parameters found and compared with the legal limits.

Curiosity: The Recipe for Tagliolini with Beans

Did you know that Giacomo Puccini was a great connoisseur of olive oil? The composer’s love for olive oil is evidenced by one of his letters sent to his mother from the United States. In it, Puccini lamented the difficulty of finding quality olive oil and asked her to send him some so he could prepare his beloved beans.

“Since I have a great craving for beans (in fact, one day, they made them for me; but I couldn’t eat them, because the oil here is sesame or flax!) So, as I was saying: since I have a great craving for beans, I would need a bit of oil, but the new kind. I would ask you to send me a ‘popoino.’ Just a little; I promised to let the household here taste it as well.” [Giacomo Puccini, Letter from “Giacomo Puccini” by Paladini Carlo – “Biblioteca bianca” of “Musica e Musicisti” – Milan, G. Ricordi editors, 1903].
