28 Jan | Mono-varietal olive oil & food pairings
The 2020 olive oil campaign for Fèlsina will be remembered as one of the most generous in recent years and of excellent quality for our mono-cultivar extra virgin olive oils.
From the manual harvest of the individual varieties, with the extraction of the pulp of olives (without stones) is born «the oil according to Veronelli». The olives are harvested separately according to the best time of ripeness and then crushed within four hours.
The oil is stored at a constant temperature in stainless steel containers, without contact with the air, and vacuum-bottled at the time of order. The result is a unique and identifiable oil, which respects the characteristics of each variety of olive.
The experience of tasting the mono-varietal oils is even more complete if paired with the right meal. How to find the right combination for each of the 4 cultivars? Discover our tips!
