Another brilliant result in the Flos Olei guide (2023) for this beautiful farm and its excellent extra virgin olive oil. Founded in 1992 by the brothers Livio and Lorenzo, it is located in Vodnjan and today it is run by the young Matteo Belci. The specialized olive grove extends over 13 hectares with 4,000 old and new trees. In the last harvest 300 quintals of olives were produced, equal to 33 hectolitres of extra virgin olive oil.
The Guide recommende the very good selection proposed to the tasting panel, the Monocultivar Extra Virgin Meloto - Buža, which is a beautiful intense limpid golden yellow colour with delicate green hues. Its aroma is clean and rotund, rich in hints of unripe tomato, banana and white apple, together with fresh fragrant notes of basil, mint and parsley. Its taste is elegant and complex, with a vegetal flavour of celery and country lettuce. Bitterness is definite and pungency is distinct and complimentary.
