Il Magnifico Gold Award 2017 - high polyphenols

Outstanding and impressive wood gift box with Fonte di Foiano’s Grand Cru and 1979.

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. Polyphenols: 1096 mg/kg.

After filtering, the exquisite oil is clear. 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. 

1078 mg/kg is the highest polyphenol level we've seen!

An early award winner, “1979” is outstanding. But, what is the reason behind the name? That’s the year the grove was planted. The artisan olive farmers at Fonte di Foiano have yet another winner with 1979. This oil is a blend of Frantoio (60%) and Moraiolo (40%) olives, harvested in October.

1979 is intensely fruity with notes of grass, artichoke, and tomato leaf. It is both spicy and bitter, with very long persistence in the finish. Excellent profile with polyphenol level of 879. 

Tuscan oils, such as these are perfect when drizzled on a good steak, carpaccio, simple beans, tomato based soups, and wherever a good bit of peppery flavor enhances the selected foods.
