A “little Tuscany” in the South of Uruguay: Colinas de Garzón olive groves are located a few kilometers away from the Uruguayan coastline, by Pueblo Garzón, where the Atlantic meets the hills. A distinctive territory, with a temperate weather, the perfect sun exposure, a unique soil and a steady gentle ocean breeze, where the Italian heritage of the family combines with the inimitable personality of these fields to create the highest quality olive oils.
HIGH QUALITY AND GREAT FLAVOR, FROM ITALIAN VARIETALS: the pure juice of two varietals, Frantoio and Leccino, amongst the most noted fine olives originally from Tuscany, Italy. The vibrant bouquet of the Frantoio blends together with the delicate Leccino to result into a nice fruity aroma with hints of fresh cut grass, bright yellow gold and soft green in color. Bitter in the mouth and pungent in the throat, it is best described as a balanced and fresh olive oil that evokes green tomatoes and almonds.
NATURALLY HIGH POLYPHENOL CONTENT: The olives are picked at optimum ripeness and immediately processed at Colinas de Garzón own mill through a cold pressing technique to bring out the most intense aroma and ensure excellent properties and the maximum health benefits. Our Italian Blend is significantly high in polyphenol and vitamins, with low acidity levels (0.25%), naturally gluten free.
VERSATILE, CHEF’s FAVOURITE: our “Corte Italiano” is a highly versatile olive oil you can use for dipping, marinating, sautéing, as salad dressing and finishing. It pairs best with meats, soups, sauces and for BBQ. Colinas de Garzon is the Olive Oil chosen by celebrity chef Francis Mallmann known all over the world for his open-fire cooking and his exclusive cuisine.
