DESCRIPTION AND TYPE:
PDO Veneto Valpolicella Denomination of Protected Origin. Olive groves in the areas of Illasi, Lavagno (Verona).
The varieties Favarol, Grignano, Piangente, Leccino, Canino and Taggiasca are from trees ranging from 35 years old to more than 2 centuries, which are trained and pruned to the classic system; the grove is cover-croped, with no irrigation, but only annual organic fertilisation. Olives are picked by hand in the 1st decade of November as veraison begins.
The olives are crushed the same day they are picked, then the oil is obtained by the cold continuous extraction process. Olive yield varies from year to year, from a minimum of 15 quintals/hectare to a maximum of 60, with a yield in oil that varies between 8 and 13%.
Green, flecked with pale yellow, very finely-balanced density, correct fluidity.
Fragrances of herbs and blossoms, artichoke and potato.
Crisp, fruity, lightly peppery, conveying freshly-picked vegetables, moss, and wildflowers. Alluring and long-lingering, it will bring out the finest qualities in all foods.
Delicious poured from the bottle directly on raw and cooked vegetables, soups, fish and meat.
