Virtual Olive Oil & Gourmet Tasting

Tasting of 6 kind of olive oils and Balsamic Vinegar

Italy is not only food and wine; Italy is also oil. Try our new virtual tasting experience of Olive Oil, a precious product that we produce every year from the olives of our olive groves and which accompanies our delicious meals every day. Discover with the family of Tenuta Torciano how the EVO is made and how to taste it.

During the oil tasting, we will find out, with the help of our experts, what the oil tasting techniques are and what is the sensorial vocabulary to be used to describe its strengths and weaknesses.

The culture of extra virgin olive oil has made great progress and we are happy to guide our guest in deepening their knowledge of this product and the benefits it can derive from the Mediterranean diet. The oil tasting is divided into two main phases: the olfactory examination and the taste-olfactory examination. Tasting is used to identify the characteristics and quality through sensory analysis. After the olfactory examination, the oral sensations are evaluated to perceive the bitter and spicy sensations well.
