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?

Extra virgin: pleasure and well-being

About Us,

Yesterday we participated with our Dop Marchese di Canossa  to the event at the headquarters of Confagricoltura – Rome entitled “Olive oil: the pleasure of well-being.” There were about thirty producers and we were able to taste all the excellent extra virgin olive oils of the various Italian regions. There has been talk of the countless varieties of olives in Italy, the need to defend and pass on our heritage and, above all, the extra virgin olive oil characteristics that we often forget as consumers: it is effective in the prevention of arterial disorders and heart, lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood, has an anti-aging function as it is rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene (provitamin a) and antioxidants, such as phenolic compounds. It protects against decalcification and osteoporosis and has an effective preventive action against breast cancer and those of the gastrointestinal tract.

So the important thing is to protect and to know what we eat, and the extra virgin olive oil has the characteristics that increase both the pleasure and our well-being.

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!

The new Canossa 1077 label

About Us,

We wanted to make something special for us in 2015, so we have bottled our best oil with a new label.

The Cru, the extra virgin olive oil made with a selection of olives from our estate, has a new look dedicated to the 900 years since the death of Matilde di Canossa. We have created a new name with the signature of Matilde, obtaining the extra virgin olive oil DOP Garda Orientale Canossa 1077.

You can find it, together with the Fondo Brè label, online and in some quality stores as Mercato del Duomo and Verdi’s.
