A deep green in colour, full-bodied, it offers the nose a rich aromatic bouquet abounding in floral, fruity and herbal notes, like fresh-cut grass. The aromatic notes perceived by the nose are confirmed on the palate, with the addition of aromatic hints of sage and basil. In the mouth, we may perceive a slightly sharp note and, above all, a delicate bitter note that lends backbone to the oil’s overall structure. A well-balanced, complex olive oil with a very persistent flavour.
Pairings: Perfect on toasted Tuscan bread or Zolfini bean soup.
