MIRA LOMA, Calif., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Viva I'Italia! Today, Bella Portofino is proud to introduce its debut line of Italian-style Albacore and Yellowfin tuna. Packed in extra virgin olive oil with a touch of sea salt, the wild caught, epicurean brand serves up premium and delectable tuna.
"As a devout foodie, I believe that a beautiful meal starts with simple, quality ingredients. The Bella Portofino line offers just that," said Laura Davidson, trained chef and food blogger at A Beautiful Plate. "What I love about these products is the combination of hand-selected Albacore and Yellowfin fillets with extra virgin olive oil. It has a wonderful, mild flavor and a tender texture."
This old world, rustic line of products includes: Solid Yellowfin Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Solid Albacore Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both varieties are available in a 4.5 oz. can with an easy open lid and retail for approximately $1.99 per can (pricing will vary by retailer). Look for this brand at the canned tuna aisle in select supermarkets.
While this Italian inspired line of tuna can be enjoyed on its own, the two varieties can also be featured beautifully in salads, sandwiches or pasta dishes.
