The World’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oils
Like everything else, Extra Virgin Olive Oil has its own version of the Academy Awards.
(OMG, what will I wear?)
Unlike many other olive oil competitions that look at a selection of oils from a limited geographical area, Flos Olei – the guide to the world’s best extra virgin, takes a global perspective including olive oil from 45 producing countries! Flos Olei not only awards the top of the top in a variety of categories, it also ranks the oils (all 655 of them) giving them a score out of 100 based on the panel’s olfactory, taste and visual assessment.
We are absolutely thrilled that our partner farms have again performed so well. Envelope please? Here’s a selection…
Librandi Organic (Calabria) – 98/100
Frantoio Franci (Tuscany) – 98/100 and the Best Extraction System
Bonamini DOP (Veneto) – 96/100 and Best Delicate DOP EVOO
De Carlo Torre di Mossa (Puglia) – 96/100 and Best EVOO of the Year
And speaking of delicious amazing oils… all of our New Harvest Oils are en route and it is just a matter of days before the full selection of our 2012 products will be available for shipping.
