Bottle of extra virgin olive oil Blend Verde 8.5 floz
Blend Verde is a combination of Maurino Vittoria, Verzola, and Leccino olives.
Tasting Notes: It has a light green color; the nose is broad and aromatic which recalls the olive in the right degree of ripeness. In the mouth, it is medium-intense fruity, where there are well-distinguishable notes of artichoke, green apple, and freshly cut herbs and rocket. It closes on a very balanced bitter and spicy note.
Varietal: Maurino Vittoria, Verzola, and Leccino
Food Pairings: This is a very balanced and versatile oil. It pairs especially well with bruschetta, salads, fresh and au gratin vegetables, and vegetable soups, and is excellent on grilled meats.
The Palazzo di Varignana food project aims to spread the culture of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Today, 200 hectares of new olive groves shape the profile of the hills surrounding the Resort: over 150,000 trees produce an extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality, with intense taste sensations and great aromatic complexity. The ancient origins of this cultivation are combined with modern espalier training and mechanised harvesting techniques, making it productive and extremely sustainable. Today Palazzo di Varignana harvests over 400,000 kg of olives from which about 60,000 litres of oil are produced.
Every year new portions of the olive grove enter production, defining a path of quality that will bring - year after year - Palazzo di Varignana to be the first producer in Emilia Romagna as well as a school case in the creation of chains of agronomic quality, restoration of native crops and landscape protection.
Love and respect for the territory have led to the choice of the most representative cultivars of Emilia Romagna, such as Ghiacciola and Nostrana di Brisighella. These, together with the Frantoio and Leccino varieties, present in a smaller percentage, make up about half of the olive groves (110 hectares) with a density of 450/500 trees per hectare. In the other half of the olive groves, there are cultivars from central Italy, such as Maurino and Leccio del Corno, with a density of about 900 trees per hectare.
The care and attention paid to each phase, from cultivation to packaging, results in 5 types of excellent Extra Virgin Olive Oil, of which three are Monocultivar for the Ghiacciola, Nostrana and Correggiolo varieties. Of particular value are the two Blends: the Riserva in which we find Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino. Each cultivar expresses its own identity, which translates each season into a different oil, like a palette composed of various shades of green and with olfactory tones ranging from medium to intense fruitiness.
