Olive oil producers




As usual the farm Basiaco in Buje has proposed a high class production. Founded in 1996 by Franco Basiaco, the farm has a surface of 23 hectares, over 6 of which devoted to specialized olive grove with 1,900 trees of both autochthonous and imported varieties. In the last harvest 180 quintals of olives were produced, equal to about 29 hectolitres of extra virgin olive oil. There are two Extra Virgin selections Gocce D'Oro: Capsula Rossa and especially the excellent Capsula Oro, which we recommend. It is a beautiful intense limpid golden yellow colour with delicate green hues. Its aroma is definite and complex, rich in vegetal notes of artichoke, chicory and wild thistle, together with distinct hints of almond, cinnamon and black pepper. Its taste is fine and strong, with a flavour of lettuce and an aromatic note of mint and rosemary. Bitterness is distinct and pungency is present. It would be ideal on tuna appetizers, bruschette with tomatoes, octopus salads, barbecued radicchio, artichoke purée, pasta with sausages, blue fish au gratin, pan-seared red meat or game, hard mature cheese.

Number of trees: 1800
