The Magic of Mille
The Cutrera family, based in the South East of Sicily produce sublime, decisive, elegant Extra Virgin Olive Oils from indigenous cultivars that truly taste of their origin. We have selected four of these that we feel are exceptional for different reasons and you can find out more about them on our dedicated section of our website: http://www.frantoi.org/cutrera/
Today however, I wanted to tell you specifically about Mille. Perhaps this EVOO is the most extraordinary you will ever taste. It comes from wild olive trees (olivastro selvatico) found at an altitude of 450m above sea level and is highly complex and aromatic featuring wild chicory, dandelion leaf, wild herbs and green almonds. It is elegant and extremely fine. With the highest possible polyphenol content of 1,000mg/kg it is also impressively good for you (it is even said to improve fertility). You need very little of this oil to go a long way – a couple of drops over a fine soup, enjoyed with bread or crudités or even sipped as a nectar (you won’t believe the impact on your hair and nails).
We are eagerly awaiting the 2016 harvest. If you would like to be notified when it’s possible to place an order please sign up to our newsletter
