An ancient Tuscan olive among the area’s most widely-planted. Vigorous, and wide-growing, bears elongated, oval olives that ripen late and in successive stages.
Appearing a sparkling green, it releases a forceful draught of fresh-mown grass, arugula, and artichoke. Multi-layered and superbly-balanced in the mouth, it offers spicy black pepper and artichoke, with medium-high intensity of bitterish and peppery sensations. It partners beautifully with all Mediterranean dishes, salads, vegetables, and cheeses. Simply outstanding drizzled over meat and fish.
