Flos Olei 2021 Farm of the Year  

It seems that we were destined to meet Michele and Angela Librandi to add their famous olive oil to our store. In normal years, we get together once a year, whether in Trieste, Verona, Milan, Rome or in Calabria!

Michele and Angela are two of the five siblings involved in the family's farm products and production. They charming and enthusiastic as they share their family's exquisite organic extra virgin olive oil. What we found most difficult was determining which selections to import. Initially we chose Carolea as a fine representation of the traditions of Calabria and Nocellara for the craftsmanship. Now we have added the monocultivars, Dradista, and (this!) Giarraffa.

Azienda Agricola Librandi Pasquale is located in Vaccarizzo Albanese in Cosenza, Calabria. With 27,000 trees and a mill on the property, they are able to mill within four hours of picking.

Giarraffa is more often grown in Sicily, but the terroir at Tenute Librandi is also favorable for this selection. The aroma is decisive and complex with marked notes of medicinal herbs and fresh olives. On the palate you'll taste notes of unripe almond, thistle, and chicory. These sensations are accompanied by a strong spicy and balanced bitterness. The flavors are remarkable and a perfect example of harmony and intensity.
