Lefay Vital Gourmet extra virgin olive oils are produced in our Lefay farms situated on Lake Garda and in Tuscany. Our produce includes “Cuvée Lago” olive oil, produced with olives from hills surrounding the western part of Lake Garda and “Toscano” olive oil, produced in Tuscany.
Our prestigious “Monocultivar” collection includes the “Gargnà” extra virgin olive oil, produced with the best “cru” of the area.
Originated from our olive grooves situated on the hills of Lake Garda, “Cuvée Lago” is an extra virgin olive oil with the flavour and perfume of the region. It has a light fruity taste with notes of artichoke and almond.
The olives are grinded within twenty-four hours after harvest to preserve and enhance flavours and fragrances. It is recommended with delicate dishes such as fish, white meat, vegetables and “pinzimonio”.
From the point of view of smell, the “Gargnà” is a fruity oil, with intense notes of fresh grass and green banana. From the point of view of taste, a sweet sensation prevails at the beginning, a light bitterness and a medium hot taste in the end. The “Monocultivar Gargnà” is recommended for all important dishes with a strong taste, such as red meat. Great aromatic match with pinzimonio.
The place of origin of this product is Tuscany, an area which is worldwide renown for the exceptional quality of its oils. The olives, collected by hands, create a fruity oil with artichoke and fresh grass notes.
It is recommended with all dishes presenting either a delicate or a strong taste, especially with the typical “Tuscan bruschetta”.
