Heritage Blend
An amazing blend of Sicilian Olives

This blend of olives, ten to be exact, are all heritage olives that are being grown in Sicily.

Including the Biancolilla Centinara, the olives that are in the Heritage Blend Nocellara del Belice (1000 years old), Cerasoula, Passalunara, Minuta, Moresca, Giarraffa, Nocellara Etnea, Piricuddara, Tonda Iblea. Many of these olives we have never heard of which make this oil all the more intriguing!

Blending olives is science and an art. In the end it is more the art of science. And great taste!

To the nose it is very robust, fills the nose with olive oil, there are hints of green tomato and artichoke.

Bona Furtuna Heritage Blend Organic Olive Oil To the tongue it feels wonderful. Lap a little up and it floats down the tongue to the back of the throat. Lap enough and you will get a good healthy bite and cough!

To the mouth it has a nice round feel, a light buttery feel with wonderful notes of artichoke, the oil circles the tongue in wonderful way. It is not an aggressive oil, but it is in fact incredibly vibrant with life. It is soft to the mouth and dissipates nicely.

At the finish there is gentle almond finish on the edge of the tongue and gentle rolling of tickling burn to cough in the back of the throat. The tingly feel lasts a very nice time.

This oil is quite nice. It is complex, full of flavor not quite like anything else. This oil is incredibly palatable. A spoonful is in fact enjoyable to consume.

If I had to choose, I would choose both!
