This light and simple salad will leave you dreaming of more.
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.
This olive oil is so delicious! I love it drizzled over warm golden beets or hot pasta with some Aglio herbs.
Thank you, Margaret! We're thrilled that you love our award-winning Biancolilla Centinara Olive Oil and hope you get to taste our Heritage Blend eventually as well!
Used it for dressing for salad Nicoise. It work out great!
Wonderful! Salade niçoise sounds delicious right now in the summer heat! Thanks for the feedback!
I have already written a review but will again. I love this olive oil so much I signed up for the auto-delivery. Don't want to be without it. We were in Sicily in June of 2019. We brought home 2 bottles of olive oil. When it ran out I was desperate to find something to replace it. And I did....At first, because of the cost, I used it just to annoint food and for dipping. Now I use it on salads. It is addictive. Been all over Italy but have not had oil this good anywhere else. Hope to visit Sicily again when this Covid thing is done!!!
Marie, you've got excellent taste and are in good company! Our Biancolilla Centinara Olive Oil has won seven top awards at major olive oil competitions this year! Mangiamo!
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!
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!
Thank you Amy! We can't really pick a favorite either- they're both equally delicious in their own unique way!
