Thank you to Feudo Disisa for sending us their Organic EVOO.
EVOO – Food pairing advice: Organic
Certified organic cultivation not only has an ethical, productive or “aesthetic” value on the EVO oil, but also has an impact on its sensory characteristics. For this we are always very grateful when we have the opportunity to taste an organic product and its non-certified counterpart (read here our review of Cerasuola by Feudo Disisa) from the same producer: we could appreciate the differences and peculiarities between them. Feudo Disisa’s organic EVO oil has a rounder and more balanced taste than the non-organic Cerasuola EVO oil.
Its vegetal and aromatic sensations make it excellent to accompany egg or vegetable-based preparations, or to be enjoyed in combination with vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Appearance & Visual Analysis
Feudo Disisa Organic EVO oil has an apple green color with delicate yellow shades.
Scents & Olfactory analysis
The intensity of the aromas of Feudo Disisa Organic EVO oil is medium, with a prevalence of vegetable and aromatic herbs. You can perceive olive leaf, cut grass, basil, bay leaf and a light thyme. There are also aromas of olive, lettuce, thistle, artichoke, asparagus and green tomato. Almond and walnut follow with a scent of mixed pepper and a slight hint of green apple.
Tasting: Aromas & Flavours
On a gustatory level it is certainly the pungent sensation that prevails over the bitter one. The aromas that are perceived recall those already identified on the nose: lettuce, rocket, artichoke, thistle and green tomato. Basil and oregano close together with an elegant green pepper.
We love it with…
Feudo Disisa Organic EVO oil, thanks to its vegetable and aromatic component, is an oil which pairs with egg-based preparations: from quiche to scrambled or boiled eggs with chives and carrots with ginger or eggs in purgatory and pallotte cacio e ove.
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.
