Olive Oil Awards at SOL in Verona, Italy

SOL Olive Oil Awards
SOL at Vinitaly

We have or soon will have six of the Award winners from SOL in Verona, Italy. SOL concludes its run today, 12 April.  SOL runs concurrently with Vinitaly, and the extra virgin olive oils are notable oils, often from the same producers as the best wines.

In the Gran Menzion Category for delicately fruity, Colli Etruschi and Vicopisanolio are labels carried by Olio2go. While Vicopisanolio may be milder than most Tuscans, Colli Etruschi wouldn’t be delicately fruity to our palates.

Medio Fruttato include Tommaso Masciantonio’s great oil from Abruzzo, on a ship bound for us at present. Titone from Trapani is in stock and always excellent.

In the Intensely Fruity category, Frantoio Franci’s Villa Magra Grand Cru is always the notable entry from the Franci line. Villa Zottopera makes the list and is inbound to the U.S. as well. Perhaps we will soon also have Frantoio Cutrera’s Primo.
