Hints of Wild Flowers and Herbs
Biancolilla Centinara 100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil beautifully accents a rich dish or can be blissfully enjoyed on its own. Unfiltered and hosting medium fluidity, the oil has flavors of medium-green fruitiness with hints of wild herbs and dried flowers. With a powerfully balanced bitterness and pungency, it 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 tree. Post revitalization, this tree now thrives and can only be found exclusively at La Furtuna Estate. Meaning “ancient white lilac”, the Biancolilla Centinara tree lends to a very complex and layered oil that couples together two traditional olive varietals, the Biancolilla and the Nocellara del Belice.
