From the area of Castagneto Carducci –in Bolgheri, Tuscany, Fonte di Foiano's blend is composed of Frantoio, Moriaolo, and Leccino olives, harvested in November. The flavor is medium fruity with notes of grass and artichoke. It is well balanced with bitter, spicy, and peppery notes of medio- intenso! Ideal with pasta, roasted vegetables, and tomato-based soups. Flos Olei 2022 Score (99/100).

Azienda del Carmine’s Leccino monocultivar comes from Ancona in Marche. Leccino is regarded as a sweeter and more delicate olive. The aroma is elegant with light hints of grass. It is ideal with white fish, meats, pesto, plain rice, and it is also a good choice for baking. Flos Olei 2022 Score (97/100).

IGP Sicilia is the latest development from Frantoi Cutrera in Sicily. This is a lush blend of Biancolilla and Nocellara del Belice olives, native to Sicily. It is medium fruity with notes of tomatoes and artichokes. The finish has lingering bitter and spicy notes. Excellent for soups, salads, bruschetta, roasted meats, grilled vegetables, and any other Mediterranean classics. Flos Olei 2022 Score (98/100).
