Badia a Coltibuono (500ml)

Badia a Coltibuono (500ml) Quantity in Basket: None

Badia a Coltibuono's famous olive oil is produced in the area surrounding the property in northeast Tuscany. Badia is the word for monastery, and the property is based around a medieval monastery. Much of the original property's olive trees were killed in the 1980's by very severe weather, and the current olive oil is a blend of oil from growers in the area, rather than from the Coltibuono estate proper.

This blending gives the oil more predictable flavor and is still a fine representative of the pinnacle of Tuscan olive oil. According to Deborah Krasner in "The Flavors of Olive Oil", this oil "...is strongly and pleasantly bitter, with a pronounced burn. 'Almost raw' said one taster, while another said, 'It made my face scrunch up.'

Very green and grassy, this is an oil made for drizzling."
