Aria olive oil?

  • 6

I tasted this at Boston Wine Expo last weekend. I thought Whole Foods would carry it, but no. Anyone seen it locally? It's quite good. From Crete. Sometimes Greek oils can be overpowering. This was very flavorful but light.

  1. I've seen this at Formaggio in Cambridge. They have the regular version and they used to have the extra limited version. They still might but I haven't looked for it recently.

    1. I think they also still carry it at South End Formaggio (it would make sense if Cambridge carries it). I like it a lot -- I believe it was Didi Emmons who turned me on to it -- but I'm not sure it's worth what they charge at SEF.

      1. I sent an email to Aria to find out where else it retails in the area. Then I'll do some price comparisons. Will let the board know what I turn up.

          1. re: vinovino

            Russo's sells it in a big tin for $30, in addition to the bottles. The tin is on the bottom, right in that first inside aisle.

          2. Shubie's in Marblehead has it. Proprietor's Reserve, 500ml, $14.99.
