An aperitivo is a Italian tradition that involves indulging in a pre-meal drink to stimulate your appetite and prepare your palate for a gargantuan helping of carbonara or risotto alla Milanese. Think of it like an edible first impression — you get to wake up your taste buds with something utterly delicious and then your mouth is extra ready for whatever deliciousness is up next. Talk about a win-win.
Chances are you’re not sitting at a bar in Rome waiting for your dinner, but that just means you have an even greater need for this genuine Italian-inspired Aperitivo Gift Set. Instead of using alcohol to stimulate your appetite, this set is all about savory temptation. The kit is the brainchild of Frantoi Muraglia, a family-run enterprise that draws on the natural beauty and flavors of Apulia. The star ingredient is the award winning monocultivar extra virgin olive oil made using Coratina olives. With notes like dill, artichoke, pepper, and fennel fighting for your attention, it’s no wonder this blend wins awards.
Surprise someone special with this kit and they’ll be in possession of a premium present that includes a lovely ceramic bowl, Coratina EVOO, and delectable Bella di Cerignola olives. They can whip up an appetizer that sets the scene for a classic Italian meal or pair it with an actual aperitivo cocktail for an Old World happy hour no one will want to miss.
