Flos Olei 2020 (99/100)

Flos Olei 2019 (99/100), Farm of the Year (Shared with Frantoio Franci)

The notable oils are: Grand Cru, 1979, and Riflessi. All were harvested and crushed in Fall 2019.

The Grand Cru Selection is produced with the best varieties of the olive-grove, hand picked in very early harvest. Intensely herbaceous and fruity, with notes of green tomato and artichoke. Intensely hot and bitter. Best for raw use--as a finishing oil.  Very low acidity, with the polyphenols at an outstandingly high 831 mg/kg. 

1979 is intensely fruity with notes of grass, artichoke, and tomato leaf. It is both bitter and spicy with a very long, persistent finish. Excellent profile. Polyphenol level, 692.  

The Riflessi Selection is produced with the best varieties of the olive grove, hand-picked Maurino and Pendolino olives of the early harvest. Very aromatic, and lightly to moderately fruity, with notes of tomato and aromatic grass. Mild spice and bitterness.

Perfectly packed in an attractive box, making it an ideal gift.
