Olive Oil – Moraiolo by Frantoio Franci, 500ml
The Moraiolo, 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 “Moraiolo” Oilive. The harvest, usually in October, is hand picked. The olive oil appears clear and filtered, of a high fludity. The color is green with lighter hints.
The nose is fresh and intense, and presents a pungent herbaceous with rich artichoke and chicory notes, completed by balsamic hints of mint and black pepper.
The taste is ample and complex, with a great intensity of bitter and spicy notes. The herbaceous aftertaste of artichoke, chicory and almond dominates a complexity of vegetable hints and a long persistence of smooth aromatic notes.
It perfectly pairs octopus carpaccio, porcini mushrooms, lentils, beans, chickpeas and vegetable soups in general; on red meats and first courses with ragù or tomato sauce; with goat and medium matured cheese.
