PAOLO CASSINI TAGGIASCA EXTREMUM: The Cassini family farm grows exclusively Taggiasca olives, and the Extremum line of extra virgin olive oil is the best of the best, made from a single grove of 400 trees that produce around 1500 bottles of oil each year. Typically a light and delicate oil, the Taggiasca Extremum elevates the expression of the olive to create an intense, fruity oil that finds harmony with its bitter and pungent counterparts. The aroma has notes of artichoke, chicory, mint and rosemary. On the palate it suggests nuanced flavors of bitter almond, musky pine, cinnamon and black pepper. Use this complex and elegant oil to enhance both raw and cooked vegetables, seafood and fish dishes, soups, risotto, soft cheeses, and roasted white meats.
PAOLO CASSINI TAGGIASCA S'CIAPPAU: This 100% Taggiasca olive oil is produced in the town of Isolabona in the west of Liguria, near both the Italian Riviera and Italy's border with France and Monaco. The name "S'ciappau" relates to how the Cassini mill does not completely crush the olives used for this oil. This practice, together with the absence of water during the separation phase, allows a more fruity and fragrant oil to be obtained. The result is a delicate and balanced flavor, with only slight bitter and spicy notes, making the oil a great choice for children and those who prefer more elegant flavors. You can expect aromas of fennel, cut grass and green almond. A great all-around oil for both cooking and dressing, it pairs well with fish, steamed vegetables and white meat, and is ideal for making salsa, pesto and mayonnaise.
PAOLO CASSINI TAGGIASCA OLIVES IN BRINE: Taggiasca olives in brine are a typical product in the Ligurian tradition. Carefully selected and then placed a solution of water and salt, the Taggiasca olive has unique characteristics that differentiate it from all other table olives, with a delicate flavor and light to medium bitterness. These olives are perfect for the preparation of traditional sauces or accompanying dishes of meat and fish, and are also excellent in salads or by themselves as an appetizer.
