$25 for Half-Liter Bottle of Nocellara or Biancolilla Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil ($49.99 Value)

At the Taibi estate in Montaperto, Sicily—a hilltop village a few miles from the Mediterranean—Gino Taibi inspects the olive trees on his grandfather’s farm, ensuring that each plant’s olives are up to his standards. He and a crew harvest and cold-press the olives as soon as possible, before bottling the oil onsite at the family estate. The result is a superior olive oil with pleasant aromas and optimal balance, ideal for dipping bread, drizzling on fresh tomato, or complementing mozzarella salads, soups, or any Mediterranean recipe.
Included on olive oil loyalist Tom Muller's list of "Great Olive Oils of the World", Olio Taibi's two available elixirs come bottled in chartreuse glass, which looks impressive on a kitchen cabinet or placed in front of a projector playing episodes of Leave it to Beaver.
