Viola is one of the world’s most celebrated producers…
We were first introduced to Viola back in 2009 is has been a staple in our inventory ever since. Having Colleruita, Il Sincero and Inprivio available on Crossroads Food and Wine site is a treat. Marco Viola is the consummate farmer and blender of his estate grown olive oils. Colleruita and Il Sincero are staples in his line but each year you will find him reaching for something different in the flavor profiles of his proprietary blends. Our advice is that that the 3 selections of VIOLA we offer should be on every Olive Oil aficionado’s bucket each year.
Il Sincero is an extra virgin olive oil produced from one cultivar, Moraiolo, a major varietal in the area. Small-sized old plants cultivated following traditional methods on stony hillsides at 400 meters above sea level. The roundish fruit is harvested by hand in October at the start of the ripening process and produces an extra virgin olive oil with a unique intense flavour.
Its definite and intense flavour pairs remarkably well with bean soup and chickpea cream with toasted bread; excellent on larded pork fillet and wild salad. Perfect with roasted game, jugged hare and roast pigeon breast with sweet pepper sauce. It is an ideal accompaniment to medium mature cheese and orange or tangerine sorbets.
