The variety of olive used for this Grand Cru is the "Gentile", which is typically found in the coastal area of Abruzzo. The Gentile is harvested slightly earlier in the ripening process in order to process the olives when they are still intensely green coloured. The extracted oil has a green colour with a golden gilt. It has a dominant aroma of olives with traces of herbs and a harmonious flavour with a fruity taste of almonds.
The "Torculum variety Gentile" is the ideal condiment where a distinct but at the same time mild flavour of olives is required. Therefore, we suggest using this Grand Cru with dishes based on boiled as well as roasted meat or fish.
