Thank you to Feudo Disisa for sending us their Cerasuola EVOO.
EVOO – Food pairing advice: Cerasuola
Cerasuola is a cultivar that manages to confer, like few other cultivars, characterizing notes to its EVO oils. Its delicate vegetal scents are linked to those of flowers and fruit, which are declined in the citrus notes of lemon, orange blossom, mandarin, bergamot … The result is, as for Feudo Disisa, a Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil that cannot be missing in the kitchens of lovers of this product, especially for fish recipes. A medium fruity combined with pleasantly perceptible bitter and spicy notes (especially the latter) make it a fresh, clean and summery EVO oil, which blends perfectly with the soul of the land in which it is produced.

There is also an aromatic spiciness of white pepper, hints of almond and a delicate but distinctive citrus scent of mandarin and orange.

For over a century, the Disisa Estate has belonged to the Di Lorenzo family who have had the intuition to discover the potentialities of its lands and, using the most advanced technologies, have managed to transform the original pasture and sowing fields into luxuriant olive groves . In the years between 1930 and 1940, the estate underwent its first great transformation thanks to the work of Mr. Mario Di Lorenzo who widened the production area both of vines and olive trees, radically changing the configuration of the territory agriculturally, economically and socially.
The estate has always been renowned for the excellent quality of its products, obtained through a combination of research , innovation and respect for tradition.
