Sigona’s Olive Oil of the Month: Frantoio/Leccino Blend from Chile

Sigona’s Olive Oil of the Month: Frantoio/Leccino Blend from Chile

This oil…wow. For starters, our featured blend this month boasts a 653 polyphenol count! It has a well-balanced flavor sensation that’s robust, yet very smooth, and it’s more mellow than you’d expect from an oil with such impressive stats. That’s the beauty of the blend of these two Italian olive cultivars!

Chile produced some magnificent oils this season, and the power of these oils combined made for a showstopper.

Frantoio/Leccino Blend

From Chile

This oil…

  • Presents a fruity punch with a very rounded finish. It’s not as in your face as you’d expect from an oil with a high polyphenol count; it’s big and fruity, yet complex and mellow.
  • Is an aromatic, grassy oil with flavor notes of green banana and green almond.
  • Would go well with any rice, pasta, hearty soup or whole grain dish as it adds flavor, but doesn’t overpower the dish.

Try it in our recipe for Local Lacinato Kale, Winter Squash and Cannellini Soup
