In 1893, Constantino Carapelli began selling olive oil and grain in his hometown of Montevarchi, Italy. By 1940, his dream of moving the business to Florence came true. Carapelli’s new Florentine warehouses were supplied with oil directly from the family mill at Ponte e Ema. By the 1950s, Carapelli was a household name. Today, Carapelli’s state-of-the-art headquarters in southern Florence combines Old World craftsmanship and new world standards. Here, we test our packaged products twice a day to ensure their physical and sensory characteristics meet our exacting standards.
I am Italian, and my husband lived in Italy for two years. It’s where we met. So we love Italian food and, of course, appreciate a really great Olive Oil. Carapelli’s Il Numerato is amazing Olive Oil – in fact, my husband said it was the best he’s probably ever had! I also happen to love to cook, and we use olive oil almost on a daily basis. This stuff really is great! I had never used Grapeseed Oil before, but I’ve heard all about its benefits. It’s a healthier oil, like olive oil, but doesn’t add the flavor that olive oil does. So you can do lowfat cooking without adding other flavors to your dish. These Carapelli Oils have been an awesome addition to our cooking!
