Flos Olei 2022, The Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil Monovarietal - Medium Fruity

Flos Olei 2022 (99/100)

Gambero Rosso La Stella 2022 for 10 Consecutive years of Tre Foglie

Itrans, a denocciolato Itrana monocultivar comes to us from Madonna dell’Olivo in Campania. That name may be familiar to you as it is the “sibling” product to the famous, Raro. As a denocciolato oil, the olive pits were removed from the olives before pressing. (Most other producers press whole olives). Denocciolato oils are a rare find, and this one from Salerno in Campania is an excellent find. Antonio Mennella, masterfully produces this oil near the Pasetum archeological park.

The back label graphic demonstrates the relative intensities of Fruity, Floral, Spicy and Bitter. As with Raro, the Fruity and Floral qualities are more dominant than the Spicy and Bitter Components. Organically produced.

We recommend that you enjoy Itrans with the foods of Campania – pasta, salted capers, hot peppers, anchovies, seafood, tomatoes, and buffalo mozzarella. Chicken Cacciatore is another idea. And, of course, salads.

The olive oils of Antonio Mennella and Madonna dell’Olivo have been recognized by Slow Food. Flos Olei 2014.

For the number crunchers and those seeking hydroxytyrosol, the back label indicates a polyphenol level, ___ mg/kg, and a very low acidity level, 0.__%.
