Biancolilla Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: 2020

Country / Region: Italy / Sicily

Intensity: Robust

Description: The Biancolilla is a unique varietal that grows on the tree in clusters of 3 or 4 olives. It is a native cultivar to Sicily and one of the island’s popular varieties. It produces a very aromatic olive oil of great quality, and is often found under other names including: Bianchetta, Biancolidda, Biancuzza, Buscarino, Buscionetto, Jancuzza, Rizza, and Signura!


Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This year’s harvest displays astringency and a lingering pepperiness with vegetal notes of asparagus and green almond. It has a nice complexity and is a beautiful example of this variety. Pairs well with full-flavoured dishes including roasts, grilled meats and vegetables, and legumes.
