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.
Fantastically tasty! Highly recommend!
I have been on an auto delivery of this oil for over a year. I have provided reviews and my opinion hasn’t changed. Worth every penny. Fresh, olive, fruity taste. Love it as a dipping oil with some bone fortuna salt with oregano.
Grazie mille Marie!
This really is a singular olive oil. Nothing comes close to how delicious it is.
Nicole, thank you so much for your positive words! Our team works hard to make the best oil and your kind words brightened our day :) Buon appetito!
I’ve written previous reviews and my opinion hasn’t changed. I am on a subscription delivery of once a month because I don’t want to find myself without it. It is exquisite. I live in New York where there is no shortage of Italian declicacy shops but none match this quality. I recommend it but buyer beware you will not want to be without it either
Grazie mille as always Marie! We're so pleased that you love our olive oil so much. A lot of work goes into making our EVOO so special!
Very unique, tasty, and delicious product.
Grazie Daniel! We're very happy to hear you're enjoying the Biancolilla so far. It's a one-of-a-kind Sicilian EVOO!
