Choosing (and using) an olive oil can be unnecessarily overwhelming. It shouldn't be. Here's some easy tips on how to use premium olive oil and why a single-source EVOO like Bona Furtuna is the best choice to enhance your meals with flavor.
Hints of Wild Flowers and Herbs
Crafted at a single source on La Furtuna Estate in the Sicani Mountain region, our Biancolilla Centinara 100% organic artisan olive oil hosts medium fluidity, with medium-green fruitiness and hints of wild herbs and dried flowers.
Offering powerfully balanced bitterness and pungency, this single-origin Italian olive oil shares the aroma of tomato, fresh grass, almond and artichoke.
Rediscovered by Dr. Pasquale Marino
While working to preserve heritage plants at the University of Palermo in Sicily, Mimmo rediscovered the Biancolilla Centinara olive tree. Post revitalization, this tree now thrives and its single-varietal olive oil is sourced exclusively from La Furtuna Estate.
Meaning “ancient white lilac,” the Biancolilla Centinara tree lends to a very complex and layered oil that couples together two traditional Sicilian olive varietals, the Biancolilla and the Nocellara del Belice.
I bought a bottle of olive oil for each of my sons-in-law for Christmas. They were so excited and couldn’t wait to use.
Thanks for making us a part of your holiday celebrations this season! We hope everyone enjoys the olive oil!

One fantastic olive oil
I rarely order anything on auto ship because I simply don’t want to have to manage it. But I don’t want to be without this olive oil so I signed up. I entertain frequently and when I serve this with the bread I always get asked what oil it is and where does one buy it. This is not the oil to use for frying or cooking. It is too precious for that. I am also in love with Bona fortuna’s sea salts. Especially the oregano one
Grazie mille Marie! We're blessed to have you as a customer and very grateful for your kind words. Glad to hear your guests are loving the olive oil too!
