Description

Terre di Zaccanello Extravirgin olive Oil Blend IGP Sicilia has a degree of acidity below 0,2% and becomes quite dense, bright green with golden hints.
It is composed of 60% Nocellara del Belice, 20% Biancolilla and the remaining part of Gioconda, a cultivar typical from the Agrigento area which today tends to disappear due to its poor yield. Its presence in this blend makes the oil extremely special, it softens the two most well-known cultivars and harmonizes the taste.
The bottle-like jar is an homage to Pirandello, to his novel, and to his birthplace.

Organoleptic properties

Aroma: Elegant notes of green tomato, herbs and freshly ground olives.
Flavour: Rich, with tones of almond, walnut, artichoke and toasted bread with moderate bitterness and spiciness.
Pairings: Red Meat, BBQ, Soup, Salad/Raw Vegetables, Cooked Vegetables

Expert's take: On the olfactory analysis it is very intense, vegetable, with hints of green tomato, cut grass and freshly milled olive. The tasting is balanced in bitter and spicy, with persistences of almond, walnut husk and artichoke stem.

Health Benefits

Extra Virgin Olive oil contains a high content of polyphenols, natural antioxidants, which are highly beneficial to the human body thanks to their anti-aging effect (e.g. preserving memory and sight). It is proven that consuming EVO regularly decreases blood pressure and helps digestion, therefore its consumption is highly recommended to people with pathologies related to food imbalances (e.g. diabetes, high cholesterol levels) and cardiovascular diseases (e.g. high blood pressure, heart attack).
