"Three years of research, study and reflection. Thirty-six months in search of the perfect balance between flavours and aromas. And here it is. Fumo – “Smoke” – is an olive oil cold-smoked with natural wood, conceived and created by Antico Frantoio Muraglia for the adventurous food-lover,
for explorers in the world of flavour in search of great new discoveries.
The idea arose from a free-ranging discussion prompted by an old friend, a chef, about culinary trends and aspirations. “Why not smoke oil?”, threw out the cook. The question was a bolt from the blue. In an instant, we had envisioned just what this would be: an ally in the kitchen for the avant-garde homemaker, a surprise topping on bread for a bruschetta snack with friends, a boost of flavour to make steamed or sautéed vegetables really special. An oil for everyday use, but with exceptional personality: perfect even for the chef in search of that special extra note for a signature dish.
And so began the adventure, and so it proceeded – firmly on the rails of our unhurried philosophy: only natural, Italian and of course one hundred percent extra virgin olive oil. Fumo – “Smoke” – comes from cold-pressed Peranzana olives, a pure cultivar from the high tableland region of Apulia with low acidity and a semi-fruity, well-balanced taste, which proved to be perfect. The oil is smoked in our mill using only natural wood – the crucial detail that makes all the difference: our natural method is good not only for the taste of the oil and the health of the consumer, it’s also good for the oil itself, whose shelf-life is increased to 24 months. The result? An elegant finish that enhances the raw materials without obscuring their identity; that customises each flavour with extra virgin, traceable and sustainable authenticity.
On the palate, it combines delicate softness with a faithful reflection hinting at a smoky past, interspersed with well-chosen spicy notes and a long flowery finish."
