First, I would like to Thank Oliviers and Co. for giving me this opportunity to do this review. I received the Olificio Mariano Falco Olive Oil and the Marouva Wine Vinegar. I used both of them on various things such as a salad, fish and poultry. They are delicious! The whole family loved them.
OLEFICIO MARIANO FALCO OLIVE OIL ($18)A shining example of the nuances and balance of Sicilian oil, Mariano Falco is light and fruity with subtle artichoke notes and a slightly peppery finish.
· Region: Caltabellotta, Sicily, Italy
· Producer: Guiseppa di Falco
· Olives: 100% Biancolilla
· Taste category: Grassy
· Food pairing: Green vegetables, fish or lamb. Perfect finishing note for light stews or soups.
MAROUVA WINE VINEGAR ($16)This traditional red wine vinegar from Crete, one of Greece’s largest islands, is 100% natural and made from Marouva grapes harvested following age-old methods in the lush valleys north of Chania, a little corner of paradise blessed by the gods. Aged for 6 months in oak barrels, this vinegar possesses a delicate smoky flavor.
Olive oils can be used for adding a finishing touch to dishes just before serving. The complexity of flavors is best appreciated when the oil is drizzled over particular foods, such as pasta, vegetables, roasted meats, fish and poultry.
Vinegars can be used on salads, pickling, deglazing pans, marinating meats, making sauces and is found in certain desserts.
