The new 2021 extra virgin olive oil of Fattoria del Colle is little, but organic and full of flavor!
Fattoria del Colle produces organic monocultivar extra virgin olive oil Moraiolo, Correggiolo (Frantoio variety) and, in greater quantities, an EVO oil mixed with the two varieties together. The Moraiolo variety has the characteristic of having round black olives.
The colour of the oil produced with 100 % of the Moraiolo variety is golden yellow with slight green hues. A strong and penetrating aroma where one recognizes the fresh olive and artichoke, then hints of nutmeg. In the mouth it is fine and well balanced; it has great structure characterized by a taste of pepper.
The 2021 olive harvest in Trequanda has been poor of olives, some trees were entirely fruitless and others had beautiful loaded branches and all the rest of the canopy empty. Apparently was the moraiolo variety olive trees that have suffered the most. Fortunately, the yield in oil is good and the taste of the golden liquid is intense so just a few drops are enough to fill the vegetables and cooked dishes with flavor.
We suggest serving on soups, on pasta dressed with wild boar, with a chickpea cream, on a fiorentina steak.
