This is an award winning blend from Accademia Olearia, located on the island of Sardinia, Italy. It is a combination of Bosana, Semidana and Tonda di Cagliari olives. The resulting blend is a medium intensity and fruitiness, and well-balanced oil of medium bitterness and pungency.
The Fois family harvests the olives using mechanical means, and is only ever done directly at the tree. They harvest as soon as the olives start to ripen, from mid-October, through the end of December. The olives are pressed in a modern, two-phase, continuous-cycle system with a capacity of 40 ql/h, within no more than 12 hours of picking.
The constant monitoring of the malaxation and extraction times – and of the working temperatures, which must never exceed 27°C – makes it possible to guarantee both the safety of the production process and the quality of the finished product, which is fresh and balanced on the palate, evoking grassy and fruit-laden notes.
The annual output, which averages 1500 quintals of extra-virgin olive oil, is stored in stainless-steel containers in a controlled atmosphere and at a constantly monitored temperature – thus ensuring the perfect preservation of the oil.
The best uses of this blend include drizzling on white meats and steamed fish. It is a perfect fit with many mild-flavored dishes. Good on salad, soups and pastas – even on ice cream.
