Colinas de Garzón exclusive quality, estate-bottled extra virgin olive oil from Uruguay. All Colinas de Garzón's oils are of extra virgin quality and have acidity of less than 0.2%. The Tuscan blend is made from frantoio and leccino olives.
TUSCAN BLEND Tasting remarks: Bright yellow, gold and soft green in color, this blend has a nice fruity aroma with hints of fresh cut grass. Bitter in the mouth and pungent in the throat, it is best described as a balanced and fresh oil that evokes green tomato and almond sensations. Ideal for all kind of meats, soups, sauces and for barbeque.
The olives are grown, harvested and pressed on the Colinas de Garzón estate in Uruguay not far from Punta del Este, where the Atlantic Ocean meets fertile hills. The plantations are surrounded by the natural landscape of popular tourist areas and neighboring Garzón Lagoon, a pastoral and previously undiscovered spot. Here, the company has been building a "little Tuscany", producing vinos, meats, cheeses, honey and other sustainable products with inherited Italian flavors for gourmet palates. This exclusive setting with the right sunlight and drainage offers the best environment possible for olive trees.
Postcards portray the charm of Garzón's idyllic setting. The enclave was selected by the renowned chef Francis Mallmann, to establish Hotel & Restaurant Garzón, where he cooks exclusively with Colinas de Garzón extra virgin olive oil.
