Dop Garda 2017/18 – The new olive oil campaign is on sale

About Us,

Dop Garda 2017/18 – The new olive oil campaign is on sale!

Our extra virgin olive oil DOP Marchese di Canossa was packaged on February 28th, after having vey well passed all the CSQA analysis for certification.
 
It is a D.o.p. Eastern Garda exclusively produced in our olive groves owned in Garda and Torri del Benaco, on the Verona side of Lake Garda. Already winner of the Verona Olive Oil Contest 2018, you will also find us at the Sol & Agrifood in Verona.
Lightly fruity, with delicate spicy notes and a typical almond aftertaste, the DOP Marchese di Canossa has a very low percentage of oleic acid: 0.14 (organoleptic analysis by CSQA) – for comparison, theDop Garda consortium admits a maximum acidity of 0.5, while to be defined extra virgin, an olive oil must have a maximum acidity of 0.8.
With a gentle taste, it combines perfectly with many preparations, even raw.
Perfect on fish dishes, pinzimonio, meat carpaccio and vegetables both cooked and raw; it is also ideal for preparing desserts, accompanying tasty delicatessen dishes and ice cream.
For mothers and fathers: the Garda Dop, thanks to its delicacy, is also ideal for the preparation of children’s dishes, starting from the very beginning of weaning!
Also available with a Gift Box or 3 liter can for home consumption … we are waiting for you!

The monocultivar Casaliva signed by Matilde di Canossa

About Us,

The first monocultivar casaliva branded by Marchese di Canossa has born this year.

The extra virgin olive oil Canossa 1077, obtained by the selection of the Fondo Brè estate olives has been enriched with a novelty this year: 100% exclusively  made by Casaliva variety of olives.

As we know, Italy is the country with the greatest amount in terms on numbers of cultivars, ie different varieties of olives. There are more than 530 cultivars in our territory, corresponding to 42% of the world heritage. In order to understand the numbers, just think that in Spain, secondo in then ranking, there are just over 180.

 

There are cultivars that can be found at a national level (as Leccino, Pendolino or Frantorio), or cultivars that express the features of a certain territory therefore are found exclusively in specific geographical areas: this is the case of the Caaliva variety which os a native species of Garda lake.

For this reason, during the October 2016 harvest, Marchese di Canossa wanted to honor its territory with a new extra virgin olive oil: the Canossa 1077. It has been certified Dop Eastern Garda, in order to combine the olive selection with the Dop certification for a guaranteed quality product for the consumer.

Finally, we wanted to make this bottles more and more special thanks to our most historical label, the sifn of Matilde di Canossa.

History, quality and certification: what else?

Great awards for the Fondo Brè

Awards,

It has been a super June for us!

We began on June 11th with “L’Oro del Benàco”, competition held by the Consortium Oil Garda Dop that rewards the best oils on the Garda lake, where our Fondo Brè won a prestigious second place.

While yesterday in Lazise, it has been held the award ceremony of the  Verona Olive Oil Contest, the first competition organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Verona dedicated to extravirgin oil.

Out of 33 participants evaluated by eight Aipo‘s professional tasters, we ranked second, and all the oils will be published on the Verona Wine Top guide.

Two great rewards, also considering the difficult year we’ve been through. There is still room for improvement and this will move us to do even better… See you next year!
