Two weeks ago we received the Olivastra Seggianese, Villa Magra and Villa Magra Gran Cru. After the reports of a dry fall and a difficult production, we were worried the quality might be a little lower than usual. However, our expectaions were brought to shame. We just love them. Giorgio, tu sei un mago!
The Olivastra Seggianese smells and tastes of green apples. Wonderful! We think it is fantastic in this "soft" version.
And the Villa Magra Gran Cru has reached a point of perfect harmony. Not quite as bitter and peppery as the Villa Magra, but more complex, richer and longer after taste, perfect equilibrio! This year it is like the best of wines and I think it is the best olive oil I have ever tasted. Thank you for the inspiration!
The Villa Magra may have been better in other vintages, but we still think it is very good.
