This year's Tenuta di Capezzana Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pure elegance. A blend of four Tuscan olive varietals—Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino—this Italian olive oil has delicate fruity and herbal aromas of green apple, eucalyptus and chamomile. On the palate you'll find it incredibly clean and redolent of herbs, such as fennel fronds, bay leaves and rosemary. A mild intensity oil.
How to use
This food-friendly olive oil elevates even the simplest of dishes. Drizzle over a plate of citrus segments, sliced tomatoes topped with basil, or steamed Romanesco or cavalo nero (Tuscan kale). Rolando Beramendi, author of Autentico: Cooking Italian, the Authentic Way, loves this olive oil poured liberally over mashed potatoes and topped with crunchy crystals Maldon sea salt.
