Speedy Marinated Olives

Olive Marinate Veloci | Speedy Marinated Olives

Olives play a large part in my wine tasting regimen. It is a neutral food that does not change the aspects of a wine but does assist in cleansing the palate for the next round.

These marinated olives remind me so much of visiting one of my favorite wine bars, Enoteca Pitti Gola, in Firenze, located smack dab in front of the Pitti Palace. What a brilliant spot to try lots of different bites of deliciousness, paired perfectly with outstanding Italian wines. I enjoy a glass of Madrevite Elve Grechetto with these savory olives.

*Note: Keep olives in an airtight container for up to a month. In my house, I am lucky to keep these olives around for a day before they are devoured.
