Mention the Italian Lake Garda and many things come to mind. It is Italy's largest lake with the distance around it measuring 158km. Its shoreline is dotted with picturesque villages and its diverse landscape contains beaches as well as rocky cliffs. It is known for its clear water, perfect for swimming, windsurfing, and sailing.

But the Lake Garda region holds a secret, which we were fortunate enough to discover on our latest scouting trip. It is home to some of the finest olive oils we have encountered in our travels. Lake Garda area is responsible for only 1% of the oil production of Italy, so its bottling are limited and most are maintained for local consumption. But the Frantoio di Montecroce has expanded enough in recent years to offer their rare pressings to the select few who have had the pleasure of tasting their beautiful golden elixir.

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.

The DOP certification (Protected Denomination of Origin) requires a very serious and precise approach to the olive oil making process. It is constantly supervised by its own Consortium and by a Certificating Body on the basis of a production discipline which is among the strictest in Italy. The regulations establish permitted olive varieties, registration of the groves, the boundaries of the production area, the maximum production per hectare and the chemical and organoleptic parameters. Certification requires an obligatory organoleptic evaluation carried out by a group of expert tasters (panel test). This evaluation results in the oil being assigned a score. Only oils with a score of seven or greater can use the name DOP.

The Montecroce Garda Bresciano DOP is green to yellow in color. Its taste is fruity with a slight bitter and spicy sensation and an almond aftertaste. The subtle nuances of aroma and taste include aromatic herbs such as sage and rosemary, green leaves, pine, apple, banana, vanilla, tomato, lettuce and artichoke. Its taste is elegant and pleasantly sweet, immediately followed by a body of significant depth.

The predominant olive varieties are Casaliva, Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino. Garda Bresciano DOP is excellent for preparing appetizers and for finishing fresh and saltwater fish such as whitefish.

Each bottle of Frantoio di Montecroce Garda Besciano DOP EVOO contains 500ml or 17oz.
