A bold, sophisticated blend with notes of bay leaf and the bitter spiciness of chicory. Each taste delights with fire-cracker sparkle that warms the mouth.
In Florence, the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi family name is synonymous with quality and tradition. The dynasty has been making wine and olive oil since the Renaissance, and in 1986, Bona Frescobaldi was responsible for conceiving of and creating the Laudemio Consortium of olive oil makers.
2016 Tasting Notes: A robust, sophisticated blend of the classic Tuscan olives from the Marchesi De’ Frescobaldi estates—primarily of the Frantoio variety. Experience the pungency of bay leaf and the bitter astringency of artichoke; each taste delights with a firecracker sparkle that warms the mouth and follows with a long, lingering finish.
Suggestions for Use: Pour over grilled or pan-seared steaks, or drizzle over a bowl of creamy stewed cannellini beans.
Rolando raves: "Bay leaf and chicory, with a firecracker sparkle and spicy in the mouth, all over your palate. Beans and steaks, please!"
