THE TEMPERANCE card reminds us that moderation and restraint help us to bring everything back into equilibrium.
The olive oil that bears this name is a bright golden yellow tending towards green, with a complex and surprising aroma. On the nose, it offers rich floral notes and a pleasing fruitiness, with hints of white fruits, vanilla and a dash of sage and pine nut. This olive oil has a full, refined flavour, offering traces of dried fruits, whilst providing just a little pungency and almost no bitterness.
BONO LIKES this olive oil in a dressing for a chicken and mango salad with black pepper, or with raw croaker fish on toasted spiced bread, with fennel and orange salad, with soft cheeses such as robiola and crescenza, or as an ingredient in fine patisserie and home made mayonnaise.
