100% authentic Italian!
The extra virgin olive oil of Zenobi is a true jewel in the landscape of olive oil brands. Much appreciated by connoisseurs and restaurateurs of the town of Pesaro, it is also gaining considerable appreciation in Germany. It is not uncommon to find the unmistakable black labelled bottle on the tables of the best restaurants in Munich or on the shelves of specialized markets.
It is a light fruity (“Fruttato Leggero”) extra virgin olive oil obtained from the traditional stone milling and cold pressing of three varieties of olives grown and harvested in the Marche region: Leccino, Frantoio and Ascolana Tenera.
The prevailing delicacy of the “Leccino” olive variety is accompanied by the more intense and spicy notes of the “Frantoio” and “Ascolana Tenera” varieties. Thanks also to the early harvest in October and Early November, the result is an oil with a light, slightly bitter and slightly spicy taste with an interesting fragrance reminiscent of spring and cherry blossoms.
It is a delicate oil that accompanies without covering the flavours of dishes. It is particularly suitable for enhancing the fresh notes of a salad, for dressing fish-based dishes (row and cooked), for the preparation of delicate sauces, mayonnaise and desserts.
The packs in dark glass bottles of 500ml and 750ml with anti-refill cap ensure the good conservation of the extra virgin olive oil and a beautiful presence on the tables at home or at the restaurant.
