The history of Fangotti production has ancient roots and is lost in time. It is said that these particular ceramic plates were made for the first time in Caltagirone, where the inhabitants were very skilled in working clay to create useful objects for everyday use. Over time, the Fangotti became increasingly popular and began to be used even outside the city of Caltagirone, quickly becoming known throughout Sicily.
Inside of these unique, hand made, Fangotti bottles is I.G.P. extra virgin olive oil derived from a combination of some of the most common olive varieties in the region of Sicily (Nocellara del Belice – Cerasuola - Biancolilla). These have very different characteristics by color, perfume and taste, but skillfully mixed in the right percentages they manage to express an excellent harmony. The result is a very pleasant medium fruity oil, full of hints of fruit, spices, and a clear aftertaste of tomato, almond and artichoke. It lends itself to cooking based on fish but also on soups legumes, red meats, cheeses and all vegetable-based dishes.
The Fangotti bottles come in a variety of designs depicting Silician every day life. Due to limited quantities and variety of designs, we cannot guarantee any specific design. Each order will receive a design selected at random during packing.
Each bottle is entirely hand made by artists in Caltagirone.
