The Classico Quattrociocchi is an intense limpid golden yellow colour with greenish hues. The nose is fine and enveloping, with ample fruity tones of unripe tomato, lettuce and artichoke, accompanied by fresh hints of mint, basil and sage. The palate is elegant and vegetal, with hints of chicory, lettuce and celery. Bitterness is present and pungency is harmonic.
Il Sincero is an extra virgin olive oil produced one cultivar, Moraiolo, a major varietal in the area. Small-sized old plants cultivated following traditional methods on stony hillsides at 400 metres above sea level. The roundish fruit is harvested by hand in October at the start of the ripening process and produces an extra virgin olive oil with a unique intense flavour. Its definite and intense flavour pairs remarkably well with bean soup and chickpea cream with toasted bread; excellent on larded pork fillet and wild salad. Perfect with roasted game, jugged hare and roast pigeon breast with sweet pepper sauce. It is an ideal accompaniment to medium mature cheese and orange or tangerine sorbets.
The olive oil is filtered, has a green colour with golden reflections, is elegant and complex in aroma with a rich aroma of artichokes, mint, basil and herbs, is taste balanced with light bitter and spicy notes.
