Il Magnifico EQOO (Extra Quality Olive Oil) 3 Stars

Featured in The New York Times (May 22, 2015) Italy’s Treasured Olive Oil, at the Source.

From the 2020 Flos Olei Farm of the Year, comes this astounding and outstanding single cultivar selection, crafted from Cima di Mola olives. This producer has received awards from all of the best competitions and guides, including Slow Food, Il Magnifico, Bibenda, Extravoglio, Merum, Slow Food Presidia, and Olive Japan (Best of Show 2019).

Let's set the scene. This exquisite olive oil hails from the lands of Alberobello. Is that name familiar? It is the famous town where the homes are the unusual looking, Trulli. 

This intensely fruity olive oil is the signature product of Olio Intini. This is a difficult cultivar and it is nearly extinct. Due to the growing conditions, this is an expensive olive oil to produce. Pietro Intini is committed to reintroducing Cima di Mola, and crafting an excellent olive oil that is powerful and bitter (due to the high piolyphenol content). 

Fragrance: intense, complex, with notes of hazelnut, arugula, radicchio, and tomato leaf. 

Taste: persistent with driven clear and bitter notes.

Use: Best with dishes accepting of a robust olive oil. Ideal with soups (especially with beans/grains), minestrone, grilled red meats and always on fava beans and chicory. 

Polyphenols: 801 mg/kg

Acidity (free fatty acid): 0.15%
