Monocultivar Olivobianco Extra Virgin olive oil Giacomo Grassi 250ml
Characteristics of the variety: This olive tree was already known since ancient times and, thanks to its role as a pollinator of many other varieties, it spread rapidly throughout Tuscany. Its flowers are self-incompatible and very fertile while the fruits ripen late and in a non-contemporary way on the plant. When compared to other olive varieties, this proves to have a certain resistance to cold.
Characteristics of the oil: At the nose the oil of “white olive” is very intense and reminiscent of red fruits and geranium. The taste of olive is distinct in the mouth and above all you can hear berries like blueberries and raspberries. There is also the spicy that results in the throat, late and persistent.
Suggested Pairings: For its particular sensations of red berry fruit, this oil is recommended for fish, especially for cold or hot sea salads, grilled or pan-fried prawns, risottos or spaghetti with spaghetti with bottarga, fish roast or fish and raw meats accompanied by raw vegetables such as pods or fennels and carrots.
