L’ APPRODO X/50 GRAN CRU DOLCE AGOGIA SLOW FOOD

80,00

Dolce Agogia extra virgin olive oil, is our finest selection of extra virgin olive oil, obtained in purity, a great olive oil steeped in historical values, legacy of the Etruscans. The only place it grows in the world is on the shores of the Trasimeno Lake, in Umbria, where the microclimate guarantees a natural comfort of luxuriance. Our Dolce Agogia extra virgin olive oil is certified by the Slow Food presidium. This olive oil is made exclusively with hand-picked olives of centuries-old native trees. Our olives are grown organically and the olive oil is obtained exclusively through cold pressing methodologies.

This olive variety has an early ripening and must be harvested at a precise moment of its maturation and strictly by hand. Fruity and fresh olive oil, harmonious and balsamic, green almond, pine nuts and nuts, freshly cut grass and resinous notes, all balanced and variegated at the same time, will delight your palate. Herbal tonic and silky-smooth, it seduces the senses in an appetizing and surprisingly dynamic taste. This year production campaign delighted us with a great outcome: a monovarietal oil with variegated but perfectly integrated flavours, particularly rich in beneficial properties such as polyphenols that contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress (a daily intake of 20g as recommended daily intake) and vitamin E which acts as a cellular antioxidant. Generally, it has been proved that replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats reduces blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease.

The handcrafted and numbered bottles are a limited edition of 50 pieces, this type of bottle officially seals the uniqueness and high value of this autochthonous olive oil.

The project. We have chosen to take care of this precious production by networking with other passionate and young Umbrians. United and through our combined work and ideas, we have created this surprisingly and unique olive oil with the aim to showcase though one single product the richness and quality of an entire territory, Umbria.

Endiadi, Endiadi is a talented artisan, she’s deeply linked to the raw material’s essence and we’ve chosen her to sign the handcrafted bottles from this our first limited edition. We have made a series numbered from 1 to 50, in two color variants inspired by the earth and the lake. Each bottle is hand crafted and hand painted. Carolina Cruciani, is the second artist we have involved in this project, a dancer performer from the Kataklò Company, her image and her grace inspired us and made her the perfect choice in order to evoke the energy of the terroir intrinsic in every single drop of the Dolce Agogia.

The stage direction is by Jacopo Sani, Studio T&RB, and it perfectly narrates, through photos and videos, the intentions and values of our project.

Poesia L'approdo

L’approdo

Incontro la natura quando lascio l’asfalto
verso Monte del Lago e attraverso il sentiero
Accade una visione
E’ un’esplosione verde
E’ un breve corridoio tappezzato di prato
mille erbe eterne primavere
Ai lati venti fronde d’ ulivo tonde come guance infantili
tenere quali carezze accoglienti abbracci
In fondo come un guardiano vestito di nero
un possente albero di chiome scure e tronco rugoso
Dove il lago entra nel prato il verde diventa fango
sicuro asilo e nascondiglio di animali e d’altro
Ma lo sguardo va oltre e si perde in una sostanza
immensa fatta di cielo e d’acqua
immagine reale di un regno infinito
In questo approdo solitario selvatico
creature invisibili cantano il ricordo del primo giorno
danzano la nostalgia del paradiso terrestre
e sperano nell’incontaminata fragile bellezza della Natura
Ogni viandante può incontrarla
se ascolta il vento che racconta
