Zisola Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2015 Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sicily
Aroma: Sweet notes of almond, green apple and subtle hints of vanilla.
Flavor: Zisola Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a medium-intensity, complex olive oil that is bright, nutty and buttery in the mouth. This traditional Sicilian olive oil has round notes of ripe olives and green tea and a gentle, lingering pepper in the finish.
Uses: Beautiful for finishing swordfish and vegetables or tossed with pasta, anchovies and capers. Zisola extra virgin olive oil would also be fantastic in baking and sweet preparations—try it drizzling over Alice Menrich's Chocolate Mousse or atop vanilla ice cream garnished with a pinch of fleur de sel.
About the Producer: Lovers of Baroque architecture will likely know the Sicilian town of Noto in the province of Syracuse. This small town is home to no fewer than 30 incredible churches from the period. Just outside of the town lies the estate of the Mazzei family. They came to Sicily from Tuscany, where they produce incredible wine and an olive oil whose production is so small it never leaves Italy! Their goal was to take what they'd learned in Tuscany and produce a unique Sicilian extra virgin olive oil. And they have done just that in the few years they've produced Zisola.
