Olive oil: Ceraudo’s olive oil is an award-winning, organically produced oil. It has a fruity aroma and a slightly bitter taste. It is spicy, with an aftertaste of almond and rosemary. Our decision to harvest the olives earlier imposes a decrease in yield from a quantitative point of view, but allows us to obtain an extraordinary oil, characterized by excellent quality and low acidity.
Rice: for your gourmet risotto, we have chosen Riso Buono, produced by Barons Guidobono Cavalchini. Our selection includes both: Carnaroli rice, one of the rice varieties favoured by great chefs for its excellent performance during slow cooking; and Artemide rice, a whole grain rice, aromatic, black in colour, and one of the healthiest rice varieties on the market today, rich in B vitamins, minerals such as calcium, selenium, zinc, magnesium and iron, and even more antioxidants called anthocyanins than red fruit.
Tomato sauce: De Tursi's date tomatoes are produced in an open field and certified organic. The tomatoes are hand-picked and processed in the laboratory within 24 hours of harvesting. They are hand-selected, washed and potted; they undergo just 20 minutes of 'bain-marie' pasteurisation. This process ensures that in terms of consistency, fragrance and organoleptic properties, you always have a fresh product, even if it is preserved.
Wines: We’ll have a small selection of Ceraudo’s organic red and white wines. All the selected wines are very elegant and stand out for their complexity, significant consistency and persistence of aromas. The exposure of the vineyards to the sea, the consistency of the soil and the microclimate have made it possible to obtain wines that are both fresh and full of fragrance. Sun, fruit and flowers dominate the character of our wines, giving the unique emotion of a great journey to the South.
