A herby nose of green grass, rocket and green tomatoes. Ample, full and silky in the mouth. An intense, fragrant oil with hints of artichoke and walnut and a well-balanced sweet and peppery aftertaste.
The oil from the Leccino variety, also from the Tuscan origin, is delicate and fruity with a hint of sweetness and makes up 20% of the blend. 60% of the blend comes from the FS 17, otherwise known as Dwarf Frantoio. The oil from this prolific variety is fruity and very aromatic. The Coratina variety yields 8%. It brings all the intense and aromatic characteristics of a truly Tuscan variety to the blend. Our Delicata trees, planted along the stone wall around the farm add 12% to the final blend. The oil produced by these trees tones down the more robust cultivars. As a result of the different terroir, it adds complexity and charm to the blend.
Excellent with crostini, fresh summer salads, roasted vegetables and boiled new potatoes. The unique intensity and peppery after-taste of de Boerin, adds a lovely flavour to Melanzane, Caprese salads, fresh artichokes, roasted chicken and red meat dishes.
