Here is the roundup of Finalists by category that immediately earn the Great Mention, incredible oil made by serious and reliable producers.

Here is the roundup of Finalists by category that immediately earn the Great Mention, or incredible products made by serious and reliable manufacturers.

You will also find the organoleptic analysis updated to the last production season that the Leone Panel made of them.

I remind you that the oil evolves, the same product in December will have slightly different characteristics than in August, but when you reach such levels of excellence the only certainty is that the oil will be for long time a pleasure for the nose and mouth.

I renew the invitation to contact the producers directly and buy these “champagne”, hoping they still have some bottles.

We support producers and who save the biodoversity

After seven years of Leone it’s time to give the right space to everyone, for this reason the producers who will be Finalist after having already won at least 2 FIRST PRIZES of CATEGORY, from this year will compete at the TOP in a clash without limits of category or origin. All against all and the FIRST PLACE will earn the title of THE PERFECT EVOO:

THE “LEONE 100/100”

FINALIST BEST PACKAGING 2024

NAI 3.3
La Vucciria
Selezione Mastrangelo, Fruttato intenso

NAI3.3 from NIVES MOROVIĆ

This is the first oil selected for the finals of Best Packaging of the leone d’Oro. It is produced by OPG Nives Morović and was born in CROATIA. The Best Packaging of Leone must also be excellent oils and this Coratina is medium intense, balanced in bitter and spicy. Al nose smells of rocket, chicory, unripe olive and green almond. In the mouth stands out intense walnut, black pepper and fresh aromatic herbs.We chose the packaging for its essential elegance, beautiful shape of the black bottle and very elegant overprint it in white.

LA VUCCIRIA Bio-Igp Sicilia from Trinacria Agricola

Here is a classic of Sicilian iconography, but done very well! The 3D printing ennobles the can considered “poor”, the bright colors of the Sicilian tradition make the brand immediately recognizable: the design is in fact that of the “stidda”, the star of the Sicilian cart.
Vucciria is a project that also includes food, art and design.
The selected oil is the latest product, a CERASUOLA bio and DOP that mixes unripe and ripe sensations: the leaf and fruit of the tomato, the green and ripe banana, the yellow fruit but also the freshly cut grass. An unusual bitterness for the variety dries the mouth with notes of artichoke, rosemary and green almond.

MASTRANGELO FRUTTATO INTENSO from TRESPALDUM

Another great oil with a clean but extremely accurate label. We like the idea that we start to sign the oils especially when they are successful blends like this… and the color is beautiful 🤩
An intense fruity of green almond and rosemary, bitter and spicy medium that give off scents of walnut, rocket, olive leaf and green pepper… but then comes the wonder when in the mouth come out notes of fresh legumes and cut grass. Someone “good” from this description might discover the blend.

More coming…stay tuned
