The caramelized balsamic brings complexity to this dessert that will elevate the recipe to the top of your dinner party shortlist. While this is certainly a more involved dessert, you will not be disappointed with the outcome. For the adults, drizzle with a tbsp of amaro to serve.
Elevate the Everyday
Aging for seven years in select wood barrels, our Invecchiato Balsamic Vinegar is expertly crafted to offer a complexity of flavors. Note the taste of sour cherries and fresh raspberries on the tongue. Add in one of our award-winning olive oils, crafted at La Furtuna Estate in the Sicani Mountains of Sicily for an unparalleled level of complexity and 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.
The Taste of Elegance
Inhale the aroma of this powerful vinegar and be greeted with a woodsy, acidic-sweetness. Once it touches your tongue, the taste of sour cherries and freshly picked summer raspberries bursts forward immediately before moving through the sweetly-bitter flavors of darkly caramelized sugar, and leaving you with the most subtle aftertaste of freshly ground coffee. Using only the deftest touch do we craft, age and bottle the smooth, elegant taste of this syrupy elixir for you to enjoy.
A True Taste of Sicilian Heritage
Grown and bottled on La Furtuna Estate in the Sicani Mountain region, our Heritage Blend Sicilian extra virgin olive oil is one to remember. Persistent and harmonious, it hosts a soft flavor of fruity, golden notes with a nose of artichoke, green tomato and almond.
On the palate, this cold-extracted, high-quality olive oil is incredibly smooth and balanced with a medium spice. Take a teaspoon right out of the bottle, drizzle on a leafy salad, or pair with a Bona Furtuna Salt and Herb blend for an electrifying meat rub.
For the Bold
This bold and beautiful extra virgin olive oil greets you with the fiery essence of young, healthy olives and opens on your palate with flavors of tomato leaf, freshly cut green grass, and rich earthy soil, leaving you with a hint of white pepper in your throat and a refreshing emboldened state of mind. Experience the strength, endurance and vitality of Sicilian terroir within the sun-ripened skins of our olives.
A True Taste of Italian Heritage
Blessed by its hillside proximity to Monte Barraù in the Sicani Mountain region, Bona Furtuna premium Italian extra virgin olive oil comprises olive varieties that are native to Sicily. Handpicked from farm-grown trees, olives are immediately milled, where their oil is cold extracted and bottled within 24 hours. Our Aged Balsamic Vinegar is pressed from densely flavorful trebbiano di Spagna grapes, then aged for seven years in select wood barrels.
Both the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar were fabulous!! Both are perhaps the best that I have ever had! The balsamic is amazing…it is not watery like others that I have had…it is actually a bit thicker than I’ve ever had, and the taste is extraordinary. The olive oil is superb…great flavor! I am going to try the other olive oil next. I highly recommend both of these products.
Amazing to hear you are enjoying the Heritage Blend Renzo e Lucia! Thank you for the kind words, we completely agree! Yes, many people that try our vinegar for the first time are surprised by how thick it is, this is how real and properly aged vinegar is supposed to be. Our Renzo e Lucia Oil & Vinegar Set are unlike anything you will be about to buy at your local grocery store!
I love the intense grassy green flavor of the Biancolilla olive oil. The addition of this wonderful aged balsamic vinegar makes for a fantastic duet. I got a set for myself and several others for gifts!
Grazie mille Amy! We hope you have a flavorful holidays!
The best olive oil in my pantry
Pandemic or not, my best meals are generally those made at home. I love to cook and find that superb ingredients are the key. Never cook with bad wine and the same goes with olive oil. Bona Fortuna is my favorite. The flavors or each oil complement dishes; never over powering. I would highly recommend the oils to all.
Thank you for your positive review Genevieve! You've hit the nail on the head- great olive oil makes a world of difference. The flavors and expressions of Bona Furtuna EVOO can really bring a meal to life. We hope you get to try some of our pastas and seasonings eventually as well- you won't be disappointed!
Best of the best
Amazing! Delicious and exceeded all expectations!
Grazie Pavlo! We're thrilled to hear that you're enjoying our Biancolilla and Balsamic Vinegar. Buon appetito!
