      Villa Magra Grand Cru

      • Extra Virgin Olive Oil:”Villa Magra Grand Cru”
      • Variety of olives: 100% Frantoio
      • Harvest system: manual with facilitators
      • Harvest time: approximately during the second decade of October, before November
      • Extraction system: Frantoio Franci, modern continuos system
      • Appearance: clear and filtered
      • Density: high
      • Colour: deep green
      • Fragrance: fresh, intensely grassy with predominant aroma of artichoke, cardoon and green almond, enhanced by floral and cherry hints which create an extremely complex bouquet.
      • Taste: ample, with strong and decisive spice and bitterness, overlaid with excellent harmony, great complexity of herbaceous hints and long persistence of smooth aromatic notes.
      • Use: Excellent on potatoes, beans, chickpeas and vegetables in general; on red meat or strong-flavoured fish; with fresh cheese, such as ravaggiolo and mozzarella, which enhance the fresh-green features of the oil. It perfectly pairs zucchini pies or artichoke cakes; ideal on grilled porcini mushrooms and first courses such as gnocchi or ricotta cheese tortelli with parmesan flakes.

       

      Curiosity


      In June 2003 Villa Magra Grand Cru wins the international oil tasting prize awarded to the best extra virgin olive oils in the world, organised by the Grand Jury Européen in the Château Branire. Following this event, in October 2003, the jury’s President, Françoise Mauss, proposed and went on to organise an exchange: 100 bottles of “Villa Magra Grand Cru” with 100 bottles of great Bordeaux wines, such as Latour, Lafite, Petrus, Cheval Blanc, and others.
