BKWine Pick: Åsa’s …. olive oil of the month

Åsa’s …. olive oil of the month

The olive oil of the month comes from Tuscany and the partly Swedish-owned farm Querce2, just south of Florence. They make an excellent oil that fulfils all requirements to be called “eccellente”, as the Italians would say. It has a low acidity, below 0.4%, is freshly pressed using only their own olives. The olives are brought to the press within 48 hours after harvest. The oil is not as green as some oil ‘nouveau’ can be but is more shimmering gold-yellow. The flavour is round and full-bodied with a bit of peppery spice.

It goes very well with salads and steamed vegetables, or you can create a gastronomic feast by just pouring it over a plate of rice or pasta with a bit of freshly grated parmesan cheese as the only addition. Or try it on a slice of grilled bread with a touch of fresh garlic and salt. One of my favourites!
