Intenso Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cultivar: Nocellara del Belice. Cultivated in Sicily for more than 2000 years, in conditions similar to those at Wêreldsgeluk, producing some of the finest oil in the world.

Character: Intensely fruity, complex.

Biophenols: >360 ppm.

Tasting Notes:

Intense aroma of artichokes, wild thistle, roasted tomatoes, celery and herbs. A complex palate of fresh greens, raw almonds, radicchio, and lingering spiciness, with a long finish. Complex, balanced and harmonious.

Culinary Application:

All medium and strong tasting dishes. Excellent with carpaccios, barbecued or braised red meats (Fiorentina style steak), game birds, sauces, firmly-fleshed fish (tuna, octopus, albacore, dorado), tomato dishes and salads, bean and leaf-based salads, pasta, baked cheese dishes, risottos, fruit and berry salads, in baking (flourless olive oil chocolate cake!), and with cheese boards, from the full-flavoured (such as Parmigiano Reggiano, boerenkaas and cheddar) to delicate ricottas.
