I used the item on a cucumber salad and the taste was mesmerizing. I definitely recommend this oil to all the salad aficionados out there.

If you like mellow oils that cook just right, this item is for you. The price is pretty good and I will surely order from Genco again. You might find it a bit bland at first, but the flavor does settle in perfectly. It might be an acquired taste for some, but I surely give this oil a great rating!

The turn around time and price was pretty good, and I will surely order this brand again. I was especially happy about how quick the oil settled, and truly loved the flavor it brought to the meal.

Mantova also specializes in tomato pastes and purees, but the extra virgin olive oil is a sure winner. I recommend this item for its purity and pizzazz. I think you will find the aroma as enticing as its taste. The product ships pretty quickly and makes the perfect gift for a friend or loved one.
