One of the most awarded and talked about olive oils in Italy, and certainly one of the very best oils you will ever taste. Grand Cru "Costa dei Trabocchi" is an ultra-premium organic olive oil produced in a strictly limited edition in hand-numbered bottles by Tenuta Zimarino Masseria Don Vincenzo, on the Trabocchi Coast, in the Abruzzi Region of Italy. It is used in some of the most prestigious five-star hotels around the world, as well as by famous Michelin and Gault-Millau starred chefs in Italy and elsewhere, due to its superior depth of taste and quality of its health properties. Produced using Gentile di Chieti olives, it has an appealing delicious taste. After an hour of tasting you will still have the taste buds with the scent of olive oil. It is made using the highest possible standards of cultivation and production in bio-dynamic agriculture, a sustainable method of organic farming that emphasises the holistic development and harmony of relationships between the soil, native vegetation and cultivars within and around the farm, creating not only the most natural olive oil environment, but a wildlife oasis. The olives are hand picked and pressed within a maximum of 10 hours. No chemical products or fertilisers are used in any of the stages of production, making this one very special oil amongst few around the world. Scientific research by the Department of Chemistry of the Polytechnic of Milan has confirmed this olive oil reaches a much higher than average level of proteins and poly-phenols.
A must have for any connoisseur, it is presented in a hand-crafted solid pine wood case, also making it a perfect luxury gourmet gift.
Organoleptic profile
It's fruity intense, grassy character evokes hints of almond and artichoke. With impressive and well balanced structure it tastes initially sweet yet offers spicy and slightly bitter sensations on the palate, is harmonious and of medium intensity. A lovely sweet but strong tasting oil that will surprise the most demanding palates. Lovely if tasted raw with bread.
