Antonac Fam.

  • Flos Olei
  • Good

Another good result with a high quality extra virgin olive oil for the farm of the family Antonac in Grožnjan. For over 20 years it has been run by Ðino Antonac, who owns 4 hectares of specialized olive grove with 1,000 trees of typical varieties. In the last harvest 100 quintals of olives were produced, with a yield of almost 11 hectolitres of extra virgin olive oil. We recommend the Extra Virgin selection Antonac from Organic Farming, which is a beautiful intense limpid golden yellow colour with delicate green hues. Its aroma is definite and fine, endowed with ample vegetal notes of artichoke, wild chicory, lettuce, together with aromatic hints of mint and rosemary. Its taste is rotund and strong, rich in spicy hints of black pepper, cinnamon and a distinct almond finish. Bitterness is distinct and pungency is present and harmonic. It would be ideal on bluefish appetizers, grilled porcini mushrooms, tuna salads, pan-seared radicchio, artichoke purée, pasta with meat sauce, boiled octopus, barbecued game birds or animals, medium mature cheese.
