|The famous Tonda Iblea cultivar|
|From bitter sensations with spicy and slightly spicy notes|
The Tonda Iblea cultivar is one of Sicily’s most famous and sought-after olive varieties. This particular olive, which as its name implies grows only in the territory of the Iblei mountains, is able to give bitter sensations to the taste followed by a delicately spicy and spicy trail.
The system of harvesting, pressing and storage of the oil used by Dario is cutting-edge 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, storage takes place at a controlled temperature under nitrogen, to limit oxidation as much as possible.
On the nose, scents of citrus, almonds and acacia blossom stand out, followed by notes of tomato and Sicilian herbs.
On the palate, ripe apple, pine nut and tomato make themselves felt, all enriched by a touch of cinnamon.
In the kitchen it can be fully appreciated on a warm bread bruschetta and is suitable for seasoning robustly textured dishes such as meat, fish or grilled vegetables; for an all-Sicilian pairing the ideal recipe is Matalotta, the typical Syracuse fish soup.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Olives of the Tonda Iblea variety.
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.
