Cima di Melfi
Cima di Melfi - One-single variety Extra Virgin olive oil
Cima di Melfi is an especially rare olive variety: it grows in the area of Gioia del Colle and in the area of Melfi, Basilicata, from where it takes its name. Its extraordinary qualities are still little-known and producers are especially proud of such a sophisticated and rare oil. Its elegant and broad bouquet pairs with many different flavor nuances: unexpected apple and mint touch, great bitterness that almost covers the spiciness typical of this oil, while a unique artichoke note completes the product profile. It is a special oil, mainly used to dress strongly flavored dishes or as main dressing on rice salad.
