Bonamini
Illasi, Veneto
 

At a 2013 December tasting in Rome, we met up with Sabrina Bonamini for the first time and pro­ceeded to taste some of the greatest light fruit olive oils we had ever had from Italy! After several hours of intense 2013 oils from Coratina, Leccino and Moraiolo it was fantastic to try her elegant, creamy and full of fruit oils made from Grignano and Favarol. Sabrina and her brother Giancarlo own 6,500 trees in the hills north east of Verona in the Valpolicella DOP. The family dates back several hundred years in the area but the great push for quality started in 1965 when their father Stefano bought out the rest of the family and concentrated the efforts of the farm.

Olive cultivation in these hills pre-dates the Romans and is a jewel of Italian oil production. Over the millennia the cooler, northern mountain climates forced the olive trees to adapt, producing smaller olives with more mild phenolics. The Venetian olive oil is not as famous as Tuscany and Puglia, but that is only because the quantity produced here is so small and rarely makes it out of Italy. Bonamini is a must have olive oil and one that showcases the vast diversity of styles found in Italy. It is our newest addition to the collection and we are excited about it's future. Wonderful as an “all around use olive oil” in the kitchen, and great finishing oil for seafood risotto, poached white fish, fresh oysters, pizzas, poached asparagus, and creamy polenta with mushrooms. Marco Oreggia, publisher of Flos Olei Italy’s top olive oil guide, calls Bonamini olive oil “Unbeatable in its catagory” and “an undisputed point of reference".
