description

Extra-virgin olive oil Marfuga L’affiorante is the very special early season olive oil at the Marfuga estate. Freshly picked in late October, the oil is produced by Francesco Gradassi from slightly pre-mature, hand-picked monocultivar, 100% Moraiolo olives. 

This fruity and fragrant olive oil is a delicacy on the table of even the most demanding and refined customer. This green, unfiltered oil is intensely fruity and elegantly scented of leaves and grass. The taste is round, smooth and full-bodied, expressing a gentle reminder of fresh grass and olives, with a bitter and slightly spicy after-taste. Noted to have well-balanced fruity, bitter, and spicy elements.

The unmistakable olive taste--and sharp, bitter after-taste--comes from the naturally rich chemical qualities that modern medicine claims fundamental in the fight against the signs of aging. Marfuga is in the highest antioxidant/polyphenol classification by Unaprol.

The unfiltered bottling process preserves the precious olive particles, leaving an intense, full-bodied olive oil. Very limited production of ~2000 Liters per year.

Notes: Lemon yellow, intense and clear. Perceptions of cut grass, unripe banana, lettuce, sage, and rosemary, together with a trace of citrus and sweeter sensations of walnut and fresh almonds. Complete and velvety taste…strong character in its hint of bitterness. At the end, deep spicy note such as chile pepper, which is for a long time, persistent. 

For those seeking the benefits of hydroxytyrosol, Marfuga contains a high level of antioxidants and high polyphenols and meets the criteria for a Super Premium Olive Oil. Very low acidity (0.18%).
