Ancient Italian butchery is an art without equal. Discover the fascinating world of artisanal cured meats!
|A very rare and almost lost cultivar|
|From centuries-old, thousand-year-old trees|
The Siracusana olive cultivar, also known as “Zaituna”, is a very rare variety that was feared to have been lost over the years. Fortunately, Dario Ficara at his Tenuta Cavasecca has recovered centuries-old and even millennia-old trees, bringing back the production of such a special oil.
The system of harvesting, pressing and preservation of the oil used by Dario are state-of-the-art and meticulous, worthy of such important trees: harvesting begins prematurely in mid-September with the system of brucatura, to minimize possible damage to the fruit; milling takes place within 6 hours of harvesting and strictly cold; finally, preservation takes place at a controlled temperature under nitrogen, to limit oxidation as much as possible.
On the nose, hints of tomato, oregano, orange peel, white pepper and fig are intense; herbaceous notes are also present.
The taste is rich and energetic, giving Mediterranean and fruity aromas with spicy and fresh almond sensations.
In the kitchen, it was born to be paired with the excellence of Sicily, his majesty the caponata, and it also goes well with repassed broad beans; to fully appreciate its essence, the non plus ultra remains toasted bread.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Siracusana variety olives.
The benefits that can be obtained from a very pure, high-quality Italian extra virgin olive oil are many: thanks to the high presence of polyphenols and oleocanthal, the main culprits responsible for that pungency and bitterness that made us fall in love with it, EVO oil has very high anti-inflammatory properties that make it a true natural medicine; the presence of almost uniquely monounsaturated fats allow EVO oil to go to reduce cholesterol, thanks to regular consumption over time; finally, Italian green gold has a considerable amount of vitamins, particularly group D, which are excellent for the heart, immune system and bones, and group E, called youth vitamins, thanks to their ability to act on cells by slowing down the aging of skin, hair and the whole body.
A last but very important benefit: it will make you dream thanks to its Mediterranean scents and its always-to-be-discovered taste!
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
