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 EVOO On Planet Earth!
This is absolutely the best EVOO I’ve used! Exceptional flavor! I’ve been using this to “butter” my toast with breakfast! Great making scrambled eggs or fried! Salads? YUM! A bit added to Grapeseed oil for sautéed fish! Tasty! I highly recommend this olive oil for it’s great flavor!
One of the best
A friend recommended it as one of the best olive oils she’s ever had. I ordered a bottle and was not disappointed! Very high quality.
Thank you for the positive feedback Jonathan! We hope you get to try some of our pastas and sauces too!
This is thee best tasting (for me) EVOO I have ever purchased and I have bought many quality oils from all over before finding this one. And I also bought the Marinara with Rosemary! That, too, is excellent
Grazie mille Thomas! The Biancolilla Centinara EVOO is very special to us, as our chief scientist rediscovered this varietal once thought extinct. We're so happy to hear your enjoying it!
I’ve been searching for a premium EVOO for a good while. Thought I found one but continued the search. And I believe my search is over!!! Your Biancollila Centinara is sublime! Fruity, green olive with a slight peppery note and luscious tongue feel! I have a good collection of high quality EVOO’s but this one is totally the best for my taste! I use olive oil on my toast instead of butter…this is the best! Use for frying eggs or scrambled eggs…YUM! Great product and the delivery time was very fast. Grazie and I will be ordering again…soon!
Grazie mille Tom! We really appreciate your feedback and are thrilled that you've found us. Eat well, life's too short to waste on bad olive oil!
This olive oil is very flavorful and is very well balanced. It is on the grassy side but that’s what makes it special. So delicious.
Cecilia, thank you so much for your feedback. We love hearing from our customers and are very pleased to hear you're enjoying the Biancolilla Centinara!
