EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL of Friuli and Riviera of Trieste and its Producers


  Olive oil is an excellent food: its only crucial point is the presence of some quantity of fatty acid (‘saturated’ oleic acid) similar to the animal fat and therefore not very recommended for health. The largest part of the oil however is composed by ‘unsaturated’ oleic acid which is salutary, nourishing and perfectly assimilable by the human body.

 This is the reason why the olive oils are subdivided in three main categories: the ‘current’ olive oil with the maximum limit of 3,3% of saturated oleic acid, the ‘virgin’ oil with the 2% limit and finally the more precious ‘extra-virgin’ with the limit of 0,8% (see, for example, a label of extra-virgin olive oil on the market, which is, besides, over the limit).
  Tanks to the ground type, climate and cultivars, all extra-virgin olive oil made in Friuli VG has the fatty acidity very very low (0,2-03%!), then it may be considered perfect on the health plane. Therefore the friulan olive oil is very recommended for little children, old persons and in light and nourishing diets. Moreover it contains many vitamins (A, D, E, K, B-carotene) and, above all, the antioxidant tocopherols and polyphenols.

  Another specific characteristic of the friulan olive oil is the distinguished flavour which is together spicy and bitterish, in measure lighter in the oils of hilly belt of northern Friuli (from Sacile to San Floriano del Collio) and less light in the Riviera of Trieste (from Duino-Aurisina to Muggia) where also the typical colour green-yellow is more marked.Although so singular, the flavour of the friulan oil, elegant and not very aggressive, does not cover but on the contrary enhances the flavours of almost all foods, specially raw and cooked meat, fresh cured meats, white fish, fresh cheeses and pulse vegetables. The personality of this flavour allows, besides, less consumption of the oil and more taste satisfaction. (At right side, the grids for two different extra-virgin blends: middle italian one above and typical friulan of Bruno Casagrande below).

All that is the result of the choice by the Friuli VG Region of a ‘regional’ blend of olive types ('cultivars') in which prevails, with the 50%, the native Bianchera Belica (in the photo) so named because also when totally ripe its colour does not become dark.

The remaining part is composed with other italic cultivar specially selected to guarantee various requirements (as, for example, the pollination) and a perfect organoleptic balance.
  All friulan olive oils are exclusively pressed in local oil mills, often in the same producing farm.
  Extra-virgin olive oil made in Friuli VG is a high level product with also a rather high price, but this is in downward phase with the growth of the production. Now the lowest price is about € 10/liter in the cheaper container, the 5 litres can, which is beside the bag-in-box of 3 litres and the various size bottles.
 In Friuli Venezia Giulia the Show and Trading Fair given to the friulan olive oil happens in Oleis, village of Manzano Udine, the last weekend of May.
