EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – MONOCULTIVAR – CUORI COLLECTION CIMA DI MELFI – 500ML
Cima di Melfi is a particularly rare olive variety grown in the areas of Gioia del Colle and Melfi, Basilicata, from which the variety takes its name. The knowledge of this monovarietal oil's extraordinary qualities is gradually becoming wider, and the producers take pride in producing a rare sophisticated oil. The elegant and broad bouquet of the oil ties together interesting nuances, for example the surprisingly pleasant blend of apple and mild mint, as well as the prominent bitterness that counters the spicy flavor that typically characterizes such oils. The flavor profile is completed with an overtone of artichoke. This atypical oil is particularly suitable for strongly flavored dishes and as a dressing for rice salad.
