DetailsUpon its first release in 1989, Gianfranco Becchina's Olio Verde set new standards of quality in Sicily, a region previously recognized only for the quantity, not quality of its olive oils. Green, thick and very rich, Olio Verde today remains an exceptional product. 2015 Tasting Notes: This extraordinary oil has a fresh, grassy nose with a hint of bay leaf, green apples, green bananas, green almonds (note the trend?) and fresh hay. The taste is buttery and dances in the mouth, and the finish is a spicy thrill—a clean, bright chili pepper without any bitterness or pungency.
