From the surname of “Su Cappeddu” owners, Cartesio oil comes from a small artisan production and is obtained exclusively from Bosana variety, a prestigious cultivar widespread throughout Sardinia.
The olives are harvested during October, at the “herbaceous” stage, a phase in which the olives are rich in chlorophyll and the oil obtained contain many antioxidants.
Our oil is intensely fruity, with a good aromatic charge and a slightly spicy taste, scent of thistle-artichoke and aromatic herbs.
Tips and combinations:
Our oil is excellent to be enjoyed raw (cold and hot dishes).
A simple “drizzle” of Cartesio oil will be enough to enrich a dish.
How do we taste it in Su Cappeddu?
In the morning, during breakfast, on a slice of wholemeal bread or carasau bread.
For lunch on a nice salad or top of some slices of freshly cut fennel and / or artichoke and a pinch of salt.
Pressing-milling period: November-December
