This one is for the foodies out there. I visited the Fattoria dei Barbi vineyard last year and discovered their award-winning olive oil. It is made exclusively from Frantoio olives, known locally as Coreggiolo olives in Montalcino.
Colour: lovely green with gold hues.
Bouquet: intense fruity aromas.
Taste: the taste is pleasantly spicy with a small herbaceous finish.
Excellent for the preparation of traditional Tuscan and Mediterranean dishes. Perfect served raw for dressing salads, soups, pastas and toasted bread for the “bruschetta”.
8 hectares with 1.186 olive plants. Soil: clay, marle. Altitude: 350 m slm.
The olives are manually picked in November, they undergo a cold pressing at a temperature between 22°-25° C.
Conservation and Storage
Away from the light, from heat and from other food or detergents, as the oil absorbs easily any smell. Keep the temperature at 14°-18° C.
Fjord is offering two size bottles: 250 mL (a nice gift size) & 500 mL
