Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Biancolilla Centinara

We brought the Biancolilla Centinara olive back from the brink of extinction with the help of Dr. Pasqual "Mimmo" Marino, La Furtuna Estate CEO. Mimmo rediscovered this ancient varietal, and it remains a farm highlight. With strong vegetal qualities and notes of wild herbs and dried flowers, this extra virgin olive oil is fantastic alone or as an accent to heavier dishes.

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.
