Sassonia Blend EVOO is rich in distinct green vegetable notes; those flavours are softened up by spicy and fruity tones which make the olive oil taste well balanced and very pleasant.
Cassanese is a Calabrian cultivar, also known as Oliva Grossa di Cassano thanks to the large size of its fruits (grossa means large in Italian). Cassanese is self-sterile and has found success in other pollinators such as the Roggianella olive trees. Cassanese olive trees are quite resistant to bird’s eye spot and olive knot disease, but not to low temperatures; its fruits ripen late and the yield in olive oil production is medium / high. Olive oils made from this variety are characterized by hints of artichoke, almond, tomato and aromatic herbs.
