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.
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!
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.
Grazie Julia! We really appreciate your positive review. We've got a few new olive oils that our farm has produced this year to try. Be on the lookout, as these should be available soon!
I received a Bona Fortuna gift box and I love the olive oils and pastas so much!!! Now I send them to my favorite people. Thank you for your amazing products!!! Virginia Parker
Grazie Virginia! We're so happy that you've found us and hope we can continue to satisfy you!
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.
Grazie Michael! We're extremely grateful for your sincere review. Our team puts in a lot of work to make sure we're offering the best of Sicily and it puts a smile on their faces when we hear from customers like you :)
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!!
Grazie Dr. Caliso! We're very grateful for your positive review and are thrilled that you're enjoying the Biancolilla Centinara olive oil, a favorite at our farm! Buon appetito!
