Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Biancolilla Centinara

26 reviews

We brought the Biancolilla Centinara olive back from the brink of extinction with the help of Dr. Pasqual "Mimmo" Marino, Chief Scientist of Bona Furtuna. Mimmo rediscovered this ancient varietal, and it remains a farm highlight.

With strong vegetal qualities and notes of wild herbs and dried flowers, this Sicilian single-varietal extra virgin olive oil is fantastic alone or as an accent to heavier dishes.

$39.95

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.

Delicious!

I loved the smaller size so I bought the larger bottle this go round. I use it for just about everything. The flavor of this olive oil is delicious! I made seared scallops most recently.

Bona Furtuna did it again!

Maybe it’s the pandemic and cooking more at home; maybe it’s just a little wisdom that comes with age. Whatever it is, there is a lot of truth in the old saying, “You get what you pay for.” That’s especially how I’ve come to feel about buying anything from Bona Furtuna. Prices often seem high but once I taste their olive oils, their salts, their sauces AND their pasta I always know I’ve bought the best. It’s the next best thing to being transported to Sicily, enjoying a memorable Sicilian meal with family and friends.

A Daily Treat!!

If you believe that olive oil can take your meal to a different level then Bona Fortuna is for you. The freshness exudes when you immediately drizzle it on to finish a dish or simply add to a piece of bread with a small touch of salt. Add to your burrata and you will know the difference good and balanced olive oil makes!!
