2020 Flos Olei Farm Score (99/100)

2019 Flos Olei Farm Score (98/100)

Itrans, a denocciolato Itrana monocultivar comes to us from Madonna dell’Olivo in Campania. That name may be familiar to you as it is the “sibling” product to the famous, Raro. As a denocciolato oil, the olive pits were removed from the olives before pressing. (Most other producers press whole olives). Denocciolato oils are a rare find, and this one from Salerno in Campania is an excellent find. Antonio Mennella, masterfully produces this oil near the Pasetum archeological park.

The back label graphic demonstrates the relative intensities of Fruity, Floral, Spicy and Bitter. As with Raro, the Fruity and Floral qualities are more dominant than the Spicy and Bitter Components. Organically produced.

We recommend that you enjoy Itrans with the foods of Campania – pasta, salted capers, hot peppers, anchovies, seafood, tomatoes, and buffalo mozzarella. Chicken Cacciatore is another idea. And, of course, salads.
