|Extraction Method||Continuous – cold extraction|
The name 9cento5 (nine hundred and five) is a tribute to the owners’ late great-grandfather, who laid the foundations for the farm where Costa di Sole is today located exactly in 1905 – the establishment of Costa Di Sole in 2018 is a heartfelt dream come true for the family.
In 9cento5 monocultivar Itrana EVOO you can find all the love that CostadiSole has for its territory, family and olive oil. The medium texture of this EVOO mainly expresses elegant vegetable flavours of cut grass, thistle, sweet almond and tomato. The pungency is delicate and satisfies the palate. We finely paired it with traditional “pasta alla pecorara”, homemade fresh pasta with fresh ricotta cheese, black olives and tomato.
Appearance & Visual Analysis
9cento5 monocultivar Itrana is intense in colour – it appears of a vivid honey yellow, with apple green highlights.
Scents & Olfactory analysis
In the olfactory analysis 9cento5 Itrana presents a medium intensity, with a prevalence of elegant aromas of cut grass, sweet almond and thistle. It also has slight hints of red tomatoes and tomato leaves, and an even lighter scent of citrus and jasmine flowers.
Tasting: Aromas & Flavours
9cento5 Itrana has a medium/light intensity in the mouth, with a predominance of vegetable flavours such as chicory, walnut, sweet green pepper and olive. The fine, pleasant pungent aftertaste satisfies the palates which prefer delicate flavours to a strong taste.
We love it with…
Thanks to its elegance in perfumes and aromas, 9cento5 Itrana can be combined with light/medium flavoured dishes. We suggest to pair it with pizza (e.g. pizza with zucchini and ham, pizza with salted codfish and roasted peppers, or the evergreen margherita with bufala mozzarella); stewed fish (cod, sea bass) cooked in “vasocottura” and mixed fish soups, pasta with tomato sauce, Italian rice salad, and mixed green salads with salmon or tuna. It can be paired even with fruit – why not try it with a refreshing summer fruit salad!
We matched 9cento5 monocultivar Itrana to “Pasta alla Pecorara”, a traditional dish made of homemade ring-shaped pasta, tomato sauce with meat or vegetables (zucchini or eggplant) and fresh ricotta: a perfect pairing!
