Italian Lake Country Extra Virgin Olive Oil Gift Basket


The Montecroce Old Mill was built 50 years ago in the middle of the green hills south of Lake Garda just outside the town of Desenzano. There the Ramanzini family process the olives from their own land as well as a careful selection of olives from smaller surrounding cultivations. The predominant olives of the region are Leccino, Casaliva, Pendolino, Frantoio, Maurino, and Moraiolo. Their palate, instinct, and many years of experience motivate the particular blends they create with various combinations of these olives creating a perfectly balanced taste.

Montecroce "Corposo" (Full Taste) EVOO has a clear, brilliant color with delicate greenish reflections. It combines the delightful fragrance of fresh, unripe olives together with the pleasant aromatic and intense notes of artichoke and green tomatoes. In the mouth, it is full and seductive, very flavorful, generous, yet well balanced. A grassy scent precedes a finale of the clear, clean flavor of artichoke. Itís excellent with soups, grilled meats, brushchetta, legumes, and boiled potatoes. The predominant varieties of olives are: Frantoio, Maurino, Moraiolo, and Pendolino.

Montecroce Gentile (Sweet) has a very simple aroma with a sweet bouquet, however the taste remains surprisingly rich and varied, with hints of vegetables and herbs. There is a slight hint of almonds and a spicy, well-balanced after-taste, leaving a fulfilling yet clean sensation. With its very low acidity, it is easy on the digestion and is quite suitable for a variety of dishes including fish, salad and desserts. The predominant olive varieties used are Leccino, Casaliva, Pendolino, and Frantoio.
