APPEARANCE: Ruby red, dense and consistent AROMA: Intense and persistent with cherry and blackberry aromas. It also contains iris and violet floral notes blending with tobacco and spices. TASTE: Warm and fruity with soft tannins. PAIRINGS: This wine is paired best with rich foods such as polenta, lasagna and a variety of meats such as Florentine steak and stewed meat. The tannins in the wine react with the succulence of the meat while the alcohol cleanses your palate nicely from the fatty flavors.
The best selection of our extra virgin olive oil are bottled as “Laudemio.” The Laudemio Consortium is approved by a rigorous panel for every single batch of oil.
LAUDEMIO is a top quality oil, broad nosed and clean, reminiscent of grass and artichoke. The taste can be appreciated for the aromatic intensity and the final spice note which enhances the flavor.
To create extra virgin olive oil, the processing is done at the farm olive mill within 24 hours after harvest. The oil is obtained immediately and filtered to preserve its excellent organoleptic and nutritional quality. It has a very low acidity, expressed as oleic acid 0.15%, a great content of polyphenols (300mg / lt.) and a consistent level of tocopherols (280 mg / lt.) The oil has a herbaceous fruity flavor that recalls olives. The taste is appreciated immediately with a strong fruity flavor and a hint of spice at the finish.
