  • Comincioli, Gambero Rosso awards the excellence of his Garda oil

    The extra virgin olive oil from Lake Garda has met great success all over the world. One of the most famous representatives is Mr. Gianfranco Comincioli from Puegnago, a wine and olive oil producer. He produces wine and oils of high quality that have been recognized by experts. His oil awarded by Gambero Rosso, an Italian food and wine magazine. In the prestigious magazine “Oli d’Italia” of Gambero Rosso two of his oils have obtained three leaves, that is the maximum score: the Monocultivar Casaliva and the Monocultivar Lecino Denocciolato. Mr. Comincioli is one of the pioneer in olive growing on Lake Garda: he was one of the first company to valorise the different variety of oil thanks to different pressings. He has opted for the pitted olive pressing: a complex procedure that gives sweetness to oil. In this way an oil can get its unique aroma and taste. So, you can try this special extra virgin olive oil by Comincioli at our restaurant à la carte “Il Giardino dei Limoni”. We can say that this is the gold of Lake Garda.
