Italy-based brand Carapelli has launched two new blends of extra virgin olive oil.

Carapelli is a subsidiary of Deoleo, an olive oil processing company.

Formulated using the brand’s knowledge in olive varieties and organoleptic assessment expertise, the new blends are tested twice a day to ensure required physical and sensory characteristics.

The new Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin products comprise 100% organic olives and a blend of a variety of high-quality extra virgin oils with a fresh aroma and a balanced taste.

"With a history of innovation, Carapelli has redefined premium extra virgin olive oils with these two new blends that bring its heritage to life."

Developed from the first pressing of the whole olive, the new Carapelli Organic Unfiltered Extra Virgin blend features a cloudy and rustic appearance extracted from the olives’ light pulp.

The blend comes with a vibrant, spicy aroma and a nutty, peppery and bitter taste.

Deoleo USA CEO Harry Overly said: "With a history of innovation, Carapelli has redefined premium extra virgin olive oils with these two new blends that bring its heritage to life."

Both blends are Non-GMO Project Verified and USDA Organic, and comply with testing standards of both the International Olive Council (IOC) and the EU.

The blends are packaged in a newly designed bottle that features spiral groves and dark-tinted glass to protect the oil, as well as a cork-style pour spout to ensure easy usage.
