Oliu di Corsica
Smooth, velvety, aromatic!
Corsican olive orchards represent 3,000 years of history in the making! Now made up of a myriad of different types of land and olive varieties, offering up an extensive palette of aromas, the uniting factor has become their velvety smooth oil.
The quality and authenticity of Corse-Oliu di Corsica is officially acknowledged through CDO and PDO accreditation (Controlled/Protected Designation of Origin). This seal of quality provides an official guarantee that the olive oil has been produced:
- in Corsica
- using local grape varieties
- using time-honoured expertise
- using modern, environmentally-friendly farming methods.
This olive oil possesses a velvety glossiness combined with a moderate degree of bitter pungency. It presents a round, complex aroma borne out of the late harvesting of mature olives. With the olives staying on the tree for longer, the fruit has more time to soak up scents from its surrounding environment - flowers, Corsican maquis and rosemary...
The dominant aromas and their various combinations change from one oil to the next, featuring notes of hazelnut, almond, apple, fresh grass, honey, flowers and pastries.
Refined in flavour and consistency, Corsican olive oil is a sublime accompaniment to special delicacies.
