Vicchio di Mugello

Notes: 

The world’s only olive oil resort, a thirteenth-century villa in the Mugello hill country north of Florence.

Proprietor and genius loci Paolo Pasquali, profiled in my book Extra Virginity, offers a full immersion in superb oil.  A place to make you see extra virgin oil, and life, in clearer focus.

Olio di Cosimo ~ Rich, boisterous, peppery aroma with that classic Tuscan-varietal tang, plus a faint hint of garden herbs (oregano? thyme?).  In the mouth the bitterness is strong and immediately apparent, while pungency comes on with a slow elegant burn, accompanied by tastes of parsley and other green vegetables, plus fresh cut grass. (July 2012).

Excellent balance of every

Excellent balance of every taste. Green grass and Almonds flavour, Bitterness, Pucgency...every character is quite strong, but it is very pleasant because of perfect balance. It' just tasty.
