There’s no universal blend

Interview to Fabrizio Fusi, founded two companies Castel del Chianti and Fiorentini Firenze: "You have to aim for an oil that’s as harmonious as possible. Everyone always wants an oil that’s not too fruity, not too bitter and not too pungent. A mild oil raises fewer issues with a consumer, but the milder an EVO is, the more criticism it will encounter during panel tests and in any case, it will have a shorter shelf life" > Luigi Caricato

If made well, oil is good regardless of its origin
