BIANCOLILLA HIGH QUALITY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
This beautiful, award-winning extra virgin olive oil is made from Biancolilla olives, also known as Biancuzza, a varietal that grows in the area of central-eastern Sicily. Our Biancolilla extra virgin has been produced on one of the most prestigious estates in Italy, surrounded by twisted olive trees planted up to 2,000 years ago. The history and dedication behind the production of our Biancolilla extra virgin has resulted in its prestigious D.O.P. designation. D.O.P. stands for Denominazione d'Origine Protetta - Protected Designation of Origin - a high honor in the country with the world's highest standards for olive oil, in an area renowned for its olive oil for centuries. This hand harvested is a Gold Medal extra virgin olive oil with high level of Poly Phenol compounds.
Same day, state-of-the-art processing of early, hand-harvested 100% Biancolilla olives results in a full-bodied and fruity monovarietal extra virgin olive oil with intense-yet-harmonious notes of freshly ground almonds and artichokes.
Buttery smooth and bold, our Biancolilla Reserve extra virgin olive oil is equally as delicious as a finishing oil as it is in vinaigrettes. Drizzle it by itself over steamed or roasted vegetables, pastas and other grain dishes to add creamy complexity and full flavor. Its complex flavor profile means it will also stand up to crusty artisan breads or focaccia when bread-dipping. As a vinaigrette, pair our Biancolilla Reserve with our Lavender, Tangerine or Traditional Balsamic vinegars and dress salads with dark, bitter greens, summer tomatoes, shredded cabbage, sliced avocado and goat cheese.
