Celebrate great olive oils with Marco Oreggia's Flos Olei Guide 2022 and three top selections noted in the guide. Gift Boxed.

Frantoio Franci’s Villa Magra Grand Cru: One of the most-awarded Italian extra virgin olive oils. Notably, a monocultivar of Frantoio olives with a fresh herbaceous scent, with overtones of artichoke, almonds, and flowers. Some are able to detect hints of cherry. The cream of the crop from Frantoio Franci. Hand-numbered, Limited Edition.

The flavor is bold, spicy, and complex. Excellent with vegetables, meats, and fish. This works well with full-flavored foods and simply with pastas. Piero Palanti of Extravoglio recommends it on Spaghetti with Tomato and Bottarga. A fresh dish that he loves very much! It's made with fresh cherry tomatoes, cut rocket (arugula) and mullet bottarga in thin flakes. The Frantoio Franci Grand Cru makes it unique.

Frantoio Franci grows the olives for VMGC with a goal of producing the highest health benefits, measured as hydroxytyrosol and polyphenols.

Olio DeCarlo Torre di Mossa DOP: If you’ve read Tom Mueller’s Extravirginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil, then you know about the remarkable efforts of the DeCarlo family in Puglia. Their family’s mill dates back to the 1600s, and extra virgin olive oil production is an art fostered by artisans.

This great oil produced from the family’s groves is pressed from only Coratina olives, yielding an excellent oil with a characteristic spicy finish. The DeCarlo family harvests by hand selecting only the best fruit. The olives are processed through a continuous cycle mill and filtered through cotton. DeCarlo Torre di Mossa DOP Terra di Bari possesses healthy antioxidants and polyphenol.

We recommend this extra virgin olive oil with grilled meats, mushrooms, grilled bruschetta, tomatoes stuffed with rice, grilled fish, goat cheese, and soups.

Viola Il Sincero Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Marco Viola is the 4th generation to care for the trees at the family farm in Umbria. He crafts Il Sincero with an eye toward the amazing characteristics of the Moraiolo olive. His age-old trees grow rocky soil on hillsides near Sant'Eraclio Foligno in the province of Perugia. This new selection, Il Sincero, is full bodied with herbaceous notes of thistle and the balsamic scent of mint, basil, and rosemary. The taste will fill the mouth with hints of thistle, black pepper, aided by almond on the finish. Meet your match. Ideal food pairings include bean soup, chickpea cream with toasted bread, larded pork fillet, and salad of wild greens. Adventurous pair this with roasted game including hare and pigeon. This is great with sweet pepper sauce. Marco recommends this with medium mature cheeses, and also with orange or tangerine sorbets. Flos Olei 2022 Score 100/100.
