100% Monovarietal Casaliva, Lombardia
THE HERMIT tarot card is always on the move, looking for something precious and unique, just as a drop of olive oil gives a hint of new and exotic aromas.
This olive oil is clear and intense to the eye, with a beautiful golden yellow colour.
It offers a full, distinctive bouquet, rich in traces of dried fruit, lettuce and artichoke, also present to the taste, where the full flavour combines perfectly with traces of almond, fresh walnut and again artichoke. The only just perceptible hints of pepper and bitterness are very well balanced.
BONO LIKES this olive oil in a salad of Granny Smith apple, celery and quartirolo (a typical italian cheese, similar to feta), as an accompaniment for pumpkin or celeriac soup, with a delicious carpaccio of meat or fish, or drizzled over turbot cooked with wild fennel, or with almond, pistachio or walnut ice cream or even a nougat semifreddo.
