Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Single Varietal Biancolilla Centinara

11 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.

$39.95

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.

Rich and delicious Olive Oil

This olive oil is so delicious! I love it drizzled over warm golden beets or hot pasta with some Aglio herbs.

Fantastic Oil....

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!!!

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!

Biancolilla

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!
