description

This year's Frantoio Franci gift box has Giorgio's highest quality selections, with all four selections from Giorgio's Cru line of Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Your recipient will be astounded at this high level course in exquisite olive oils.

This selection is only available through Olio2go: the notable Villa Magra Gran Cru, the intenso Moraiolo Cru, the amazing Coratina, and the unique Olivastra Rose.

Villa Magra Gran Cru is the best of the line - from the hills of Montenero d'Orcia at an altitude of 350-450 meters, hand-picked in October. 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 flavor is bold, spicy, and complex. Excellent with vegetables, meats, and fish. This works well with full-flavored foods and simply with pastas.

Moraiolo is decisive and enveloping, with penetrating herbaceous elements and rich notes of artichoke, chicory and almond. Gently inhale the great complexity of vegetable scents and a long persistence of soft aromatic notes.

Moraiolo is perfect on octopus carpaccio appetizers, a variety of fish, porcini mushrooms, lentils, beans, chickpeas and vegetable soups in general; on red meats or first courses of ragù or tomato; in combination with goat cheese and stronger greens.

Like Moraiolo, Coratina is from Giorgio's Cru line. The Cru selections from Franci are the best of the line - from the hills of Montenero d'Orcia. Harvested in October and November and milled "absolutely" by Giorgio.

This monocultivar selection is decisive and enveloping, with a penetrating herbaceous character, with rich notes of artichoke and chicory. Taste it and you will know why Franci calls it powerful and elegant. This is a complex elixir with well defined bitter and spicy notes with long persistence and harmony.

Recommended pairings: raw with porcini mushrooms, lentils, beans, chickpeas, and vegetable soups. Ideal on red meats and with medium-aged cheeses.

2020: Gran Menzione, Monocultivar Category, Coratina, Sol d'Oro, Northern Hemisphere International Competition.

Olivastra Rose, also known as Rose Grand Cru, is an exclusive selection of olives, of the Olivastra Seggianese variety, all from a single grove of centuries-old trees. This very small production is notable for the wafting aroma of floral notes of rose petals. It is exquisite on oysters. We also like it on mild warm beans, allowing the aromas and flavors to entice.

Idea for raw use on all fish based preparations such as hors d’oeuvres, carpaccio, mixed seafood salad – or marinated, baked or grilled fish. This is also recommended for soups, delicate mushrooms, soft cheeses and is ideal for mayonnaise.
