Garda Lake is the largest Italian lake, situated at the foot of the Alps, in a beautiful area of southern Europe. At only 30 Km from Verona, 100 Km from Milan and 130 Km from Venice it is well placed for road, rail and air connections. Lake Garda offers the visitor a splendid natural scenery, full of colors, surrounded by the Dolomites of Brenta in the north and the gentle slopes of the morainic hills in the south. A rich vegetation flourishes thanks to the Mediterranean climate: lemon trees, oleanders, magnolias and bouganville. The cultivation of vineyards and olive groves produces good wines and olive oil.
Fratelli Turri has produced this beautiful D.O.P. olive oil named after this lake. This oil from the Northern climes of Lake Garda is sweet and delicate with a light aftertaste of almonds. Not far south of Switzerland, Lake Garda has a microclimate the allows for a unique flavor; it's oil is among the lightest of all Italian varieties, making it ideal as a dressing since it does not mask the taste of the food. The scent is lightly fruity.
