description

An early award winner, “1979” is outstanding. But, what is the reason behind the name? That’s the year the grove was planted. The artisan olive farmers at Fonte di Foiano have yet another winner with 1979. This oil is a blend of Frantoio (60%) and Moraiolo (40%) olives, harvested in October.

1979 is intensely fruity with notes of grass, artichoke, and tomato leaf. It is both spicy and bitter, with very long persistence in the finish. This was, unfortunately, not produced in the 2021 harvest, and we are thrilled that it is back.

Fonte Di Foiano 1979 oil possesses a beautiful aroma that is ample and rounded, rich in vegetable hints of artichoke, chicory and lettuce, together with tones of mint and rosemary. Elegant and complex in the mouth, it releases spicy notes of black pepper, and the aftertaste is reminiscent of almond and ripe walnut. Strong bitterness and pungency are present and well expressed.

Ideal on octopus hors d'oeuvres, beef carpaccio with porcini mushrooms, tomatoes au gratin, bean soups, first courses with sausage, grilled tuna, roast red meat or game, hard mature cheeses.
