GARLIC

Garlic is a bulbous plant related to onion and used for thousands of years both as a food and as a medicine. Often underestimated, because of the aggressive and permanent flavor of the bulb, Luigi Tega's spiced garlic oil overturns this belief, creating an oil where the sweet scent prevails on the nose, while on the taste, there are decisive notes typical of garlic appreciated even by the most exigent palate.

2 TYPES OF GARLIC

The taste and aroma of this oil reflect the distinctive and complementary characteristics of the two main varieties of garlic used: red garlic and white garlic, grown in the best Umbrian farms. The white garlic is the most common and most cultivated, and represents the main basis in the infusion process and determines the main component of taste. In the case of red garlic instead, it contributes on the aromatic level, intense, thanks to the high percentage of allicin and the essential oils present within the bulbs.

HOW IS MADE:

Spiced garlic oil is a flavored oil produced by Luigi Tega using only high quality extra virgin olive oils and garlic bulbs selected from the freshest and most fragrant. Through the infusion of garlic cloves in the Cardinale’s oil, we obtain an olive oil that absorbs the fragrances and all the beneficial properties present inside the bulbs.

During the infusion period, the oil is tasted every day, in order to check that the whole process is going smoothly. Once the desired aromatic intensity has been reached, the garlic cloves are removed and the oil obtained is immediately filtered to ensure the best conservation. Thanks to filtering, the oil is able to last quite well over time, even up to 2 years without losing significant aromatic qualities.
