Olive Oil – Villa Magra Grand Cru, by Frantoio Franci 500ml
The Villa Magra Grand Cru, produced in Tuscany by Frantoio Franci, on the hill of Montenero d’Orcia, is one of the best extra virgin olive oil in the World. This amazing Olive oil is 100% made from the “Correggiolo” Olive. The harvest, usually in October, is hand picked. The olive oil appears clear and filtered, of a high density. The color is deep green.
The nose is fresh, intensely grassy with predominant aroma of artichoke, cardoon and green almond, enhanced by floral and cherry hints, which create an extremely complex bouquet.
The taste is ample, with strong and decisive spice and bitterness, overlaid with an excellent harmony, a great complexity of herbaceous hints and a long persistence of smooth aromatic notes.
Excellent on potatoes, beans, chickpeas and vegetables in general; on red meat or strong-flavoured fish; with fresh cheese, such as ravaggiolo and mozzarella, which enhance the
fresh-green features of the oil. It perfectly pairs zucchini pies or artichoke cakes; ideal on grilled porcini mushrooms and first courses such as gnocchi or ricotta cheese tortelli with parmesan flakes.
