For four generations, Accademia Olearia has brought Sardinian tradition both on italian’s and foreigner’s tables. The farm has been founded by the Fois family who still runs it with passion. It covers 200 hectares of land hosting 25.000 olive trees.
Accademia Olearia’s extra virgin olive oils have been awarded worldwide. It is worth mentioning the XX National Competition Ercole Olivaro and in the German competition Der Feinschmecker Olivenöl 2013: in both the competitions, the farm’s oils ranked first place. These victories allowed Accademia Olearia to be known beyond the island’s borders.
The Semidana is made only with olives belonging to the homonymous variety which grows in the center of the island. This gives the oil a medium-intense taste which is very typical of the products of this area. For this reason, the Semidana has been selected by Accademia Olearia for the project to enhance Sardinia’s gastronomic heritage.
This oil has a bitter and spicy taste, although it does not disturb the palate. Its fruity scent makes it the perfect dressing for raw and boiled or steamed vegetables.
