Palazzo di Varignana Olive Oil Tasting Kit is a very special gift for any occasion you may celebrate - a housewarming party or a birthday... as a unique gift to newly weds, to a dear friend or to yourself!
The box includes two tins of the finest extra virgin olive oil and two tasting cups - all made in Italy with love for you!
About the oil blends:
Cultivated in the Bolognese hills surrounding the Palazzo Varignana, over 150,000 olive trees produce an extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality, with intense taste sensations and great aromatic complexity.
Cold pressing and centrifuging the fresh fruits preserves all its outstanding nutritional value and health benefits, including high concentrations of oleic acid and antioxidants.
Blend Blu is obtained from Correggiolo, Leccio del Corno, and Pendolino olives, it has medium intensity and fresh vegetable notes.
Blend Verde is a combination of Maurino Vittoria, Verzola, and Leccino olives. It has a light green color, medium intensity with notes of artichoke and green apple.
Olive oil is by far the most important ingredient of the Mediterranean diet!
Both Blend Blu and Blend Verde are very balanced and versatile oils. Rich in heart-healthy fats and vitamins E and K, the oils are best if eaten raw. They pair excellently with a bruschetta, salads, fresh and grilled vegetables, vegetable soups and grilled meats.
About the apron:
The rustic Italian apron is handmade with traditional block printing at “Antica Stamperia Carpegna”, a historic workshop tucked away in a small Marche region village. The workshop is run by the young artist Emanuele Francioni - 6th generation of his family to carry on the centuries old block printing unique to this region of Italy.
The traditional design of this placemat is a cornucopia, an ornamental container shaped like a goat’s horn, a symbol of abundance and good luck.
