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.
Best olive Oil
As always, unmatched quality, aroma, and flavor.
This is the best of the Bona Furtana types, and I can’t imagine any other producer in the world could make something better. The Biancolilla is oil balanced and intense, layered with subtleties that are unlike anything I’ve ever tried.
REAL Olive Oil !!
Excellent! The difference in REAL olive oil vs all the types I have tried here in the USA are simply astounding and wonderfully tasty ! There really is no comparison.
Grazie William! Our extra virgin olive oil is the cornerstone of everything that we do.
Delicious olive oil
Fantastically tasty! Highly recommend!
Grazie Liza! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed our Biancolilla Centinara olive oil. It's truly one of a kind and only found in Sicily!
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!
