Corto Tasting Samples

I love the freshness and brightness of Corto oils. Freshness matters and makes a huge difference.

Chef Trevor

Richmond,Virginia

With Corto, I get the texture - the smoothness and creaminess - I seek in my pastas that I cannot get with other olive oils.

Chef Silvia

It was an easy choice to choose TRULY® over other oils. And the packaging in FlavorLock boxes makes so much sense.

Chef Reddy

Denver, Colorado

Oil coming from Italy to America - it would be so easy for the oil to change flavor. However with Corto, the flavors don't change.

Chef Silvia

Brooklyn, New York

There are a lot of misconceptions about olive oil. Knowledge is power. I hope that once people know the difference, they will embrace companies like Corto who are bringing fresh olive oil to our kitchens.

Chef Audrey

Using La Padella® definitely improved the dish. The moisture of the chicken cooked with this oil far exceeded my expectations. And it doesn’t burn in the pan!

Illustration Oil in Flavorlock package

As oil is dispensed in our FlavorLock™ Boxes, the bag inside collapses, keeping air out (and all the goodness in).

Our FlavorLock™ Package Keeps Oil Fresh, Even After Opening

We protect our carefully crafted olive oils in our proprietary oxygen-free FlavorLock™ Box, the only packaging that protects the oil from flavor damaging light and air from the time it is filled until the last drop is used.

TRULY®

100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We harvest our olives at the peak of freshness in the Fall and promptly cold-extract them in our state-of-the-art mill. The fresh flavor of the oil is maintained by holding it in our climate controlled cellar prior to packaging. We are dedicated to superior quality every step of the way. Why do we say “TRULY 100% Extra Virgin”? Despite many bland imposters, we are absolutely dedicated to making the real thing.

51-49®

Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Canola Oil Blend

We designed 51-49® to provide fresh olive oil flavor and aroma with slightly less intensity than our TRULY® Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The combination of 51% Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 49% Non-GMO Expeller Pressed Canola delivers just enough olive oil flavor to compliment delicate foods without overpowering them. 51-49® is great for dressing salads, finishing warm entrees, light sautéing, and enriching signature sauces.

La Padella®

Sauté Oil

La Padella® is crafted specifically for high-performance sautéing with authentic olive oil character. The “backbone” of La Padella® is provided by Rice Bran Oil which delivers a superior high smoke point, and Fresh Extra Virgin Olive Oil which adds real olive oil flavor and aroma. This precision blend is completed with Avocado and Grapeseed Oils to make La Padella® the perfect choice for high-performance kitchens seeking flavor authenticity.

Corto La Padella 20L and 10L Boxes

Bringing freshness back into the olive oil industry.

70% of extra virgin olive oils on the market today are actually rancid or defective*. We harvest our olives at peak freshness and then cold-extract them in our state-of-the-art mill on the very same day.
