Extra virgin olive oil is a central part of the Mediterranean diet and one of the healthiest oils in the world. Read our post to find out more about the benefits of olive oil and why you should add more olive oil to your diet.
A True Taste of Sicilian Heritage
Grown and bottled on La Furtuna Estate in the Sicani Mountain region, our Heritage Blend Sicilian extra virgin olive oil is one to remember. Persistent and harmonious, it hosts a soft flavor of fruity, golden notes with a nose of artichoke, green tomato and almond.
On the palate, this cold-extracted, high-quality olive oil is incredibly smooth and balanced with a medium spice. Take a teaspoon right out of the bottle, drizzle on a leafy salad, or pair with a Bona Furtuna Salt and Herb blend for an electrifying meat rub.
A Harmony of Native Olive Varietals
Blessed by its hillside proximity to Monte Barraù in the Sicani Mountain region, Bona Furtuna Heritage Blend premium Italian extra virgin olive oil is comprised of olive varieties that are native to Sicily. Handpicked from farm-grown trees, olives are immediately milled, where their oil is cold extracted and estate bottled within 24 hours.
Great with Popcorn
I use olive oil each daily with foods I prepare. Sautéed vegetables, scrambled eggs, broiled fish ! Especially love love making popcorn on the stove with Bono Fortuna .... added bonus .... my popcorn is finished off with olive oil and sea salt. Love it all !!!
Ellen, you've already caught on to one of our favorite uses! Drizzling fresh olive oil on popcorn is a family favorite at our households!
Bona Fortuna Heritage blend is absolutely delicious with a splendid fragrance. Bona Fortuna is my favorite olive oil and I enjoy it on my salads and in my cooking!
Thank you so much for your positive feedback Marianne! The Heritage Blend was our first product and is still a customer favorite after several years.
The Heritage Blend olive oil is like nothing you can buy in American grocery stores. It is really delicious - tastes like it was just harvested! Really makes a salad pop with flavor. We highly recommend it!
Well said Lucille. We really appreciate the positive feedback and are so happy to hear you're enjoying the Heritage Blend EVOO.
One of the best!
I have become convinced that Sicily produces the best olive oil in the world. I tried the heritage selection and it was fantastic using it for dipping with some excellent spices. Great flavor and never let me down. I recommend it to anyone.
Grazie mille Pat! We're honored to be a part of your everyday dining.
Love the products!
The Olive OIls are fantastice, and the best I've ever tasted. I have been ordering them as gifts for my friends. The pasta, in any size or shape, is far superior to anything available in the grocery store. No matter how long you boil it, it never gets soggy or mushy, but retains a firm texture. Absolutely amazing!
Grazie Susan! We're very grateful for your positive review and are thrilled to hear you've been enjoying our oils and pastas. Buon appetito!
