Description

In the land of Calabria and for the family of Olearia San Giorgio, the name Micu has an important value. Dedicated to and named after their Grandfather Domenico “Nonno Micu” born in 1906, he was a farmer, father of ten, and a man with a rough, strong, tenacious character. In 1940 it was he who directed the olive business that in 1992 took the name ofOlearia San Giorgioof the Fazari brothers. An oil named for his intense character, only 1906 bottles have been produced and from which the family has selected their best olive trees from the varieties that he loved so much: Ottobratica and Cassanese. These carefully selected varieties have produced an extraordinary oil of medium fruity intensity with pronounced grassy hints and a well-balanced spicy finish. Pour a few drops on boiled hot potatoes, on a plate of raw vegetables or fresh grilled fish and discover how its simple taste takes you on an intense sensory journey.
