Basil is an incredibly perfumed and fragrant herb. His delicate leaves that have a distinctly aromatic flavor are used mainly in the Mediterranean cuisine. It has impressive nutritional and healthy features like antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Moreover, it is an excellent source of magnesium, an essential mineral with important relaxing properties for muscles and for blood vessels as well, it is able to sustain the blood flow and decrease the arrhythmias risk.
The Basil Extra Virgin La Marronaia Olive Oil was born. This is what happens when our best extra virgin olive oil, made with 100% Tuscan olives and produced exclusively with traditional methods, met carefully selected Basil from our hinterland.
The handy 250-ml bottle made from durable Ultra Violet Absorbing Glass (uvag glass) is ideal for packed lunches during mountain trails, or tourist excursions on our romantic hills.
