Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Single Varietal Biancolilla Centinara

9 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.


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.

Haven’t tried it yet. Using the heritage blend.

You just want to drink it that’s all. It’s that good.

Best Olive Oil EVER!

I love using this fantastic olive oil on everything! It has a beautiful floral quality which pairs perfect with all the vegetables I have been using from local farms. I love drizzling a bit of this oil on everything from grilled fish to fluffy frittatas to add a burst of richness and flavor. This liquid gold is the best olive oil I have ever tasted!

Bona Furtuna

Thanks Li! We're so glad you're enjoying our award-winning olive oil! The Biancolilla Centinara olive was rediscovered on our farm and can't be found anywhere else.

I wanted to compare the Biancolilla with the Corleone. (I love the Corleone). Biancolilla is just as fantastic! It has a greener, grassier flavor but without any bitterness that you often find in that style. Bold and buttery!

Bona Furtuna

Thank you Amy! We can't really pick a favorite either- they're both equally delicious in their own unique way!

Exquisite Olive Oil

My husband and I have traveled to Italy many many times. No matter the region, I adore the olive oil. We send some home, and eventually it is gone. I live in New York and there is no shortage of Italian delicacy stores. But I have never been able to find the subtle, exquisite flavor that I experience in Italy --- until now. This oil is simply perfect. Not to drown a salad in, but to anoint antipasti, tomatoes. I've already written a review on the Sicilian Sea Salt with Oregano. That, combined with this olive oil..... transports me to Italy even in today's quarantine existence. Thank you Bona Furtuna!!

Bona Furtuna

Thank you Marie! We're so glad you found us and enjoy the olive oil! The Biancolilla Centinara is truly one of a kind, and we're the only commercial producers of this native Sicilian olive. We hope you get to try our Heritage Blend olive oil at some point too!

Great flavor with a peppery lightness that is a treat to enjoy with bread and cheese, nothing else needed.

You said it best, we couldn't agree more!
