Bacci Noemio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (3L CAN) – Moraiolo (60%), Frantoio (20%) & Leccino (20%)
100% Cold-pressed, certified ICEA Organic olive oil.
On the nose, it presents itself with notes of fresh olive and almond with hints reminiscent of balsamic herbs and apple. On the palate, it has a pleasant and herbaceous initial flavour with balsamic notes, balanced in bitter and spicy notes with olive flavour and vegetable tones reminiscent of sweet artichoke, and closes harmoniously with floral and almond notes.
Pairing: recommended trying it with boiled or stewed meats. Given its versatility, due to a limited intensity of bitter and spicy notes, it is suitable for all grilled and boiled vegetables, legume soups, and especially spelt soups, chickling peas, lentils and pea soups. It stands out on all boiled or sautéed vegetables and still adapts to all vegetables and side dishes, boiled and grilled fish, or cold fish appetizers. If you love to perceive all its fruitiness, try it on vegetable soups or discordantly on fresh salads.
