MARFUGA DOP UMBRIA RISERVA EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Marfuga Riserva extra virgin olive oil is obtained from selected olives (Moraiolo and Frantoio), strictly harvested by hand, in my own olive groves in the area of Campello sul Clitunno and Trevi.
Olive oil extraction process takes place, before olives are fully ripened, in the olive oil mill. Chemical and organoleptic characteristics of this selected product are: deep green color with fresh and herbaceous aroma, with dominant hints of artichoke and thistle.
It has a large-scale taste with balanced bitter and spicy notes and a great complexity of vegetable scents with mildly green almond after-taste.
Culinary Advices: strictly raw on legumes and vegetable soups, excellent on red meat and on prized fishes like basses, gilthead breams, and snappers.
It's also recommended on fresh cheese where its most aromatic and vegetable component is enhanced.
To appreciate its sensory characteristics we recommend it on simple dishes like plain rice and pasta with parmesan cheese slivers.
