Extra virgin Olive Oil

ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL “ORGILLA”

This quality oil is produced exclusively from organic olives picked by hand on our AIAB and CPPB registered farm. The oil is a blend of several types of olive -leccino, frantoio, pendolino, sargano and Oliva tenera ascolana. These latter three types are authentic species from the Picenum province. When the season allows, the farm Fiorano produces also a type of oil made by only Oliva Tenera Ascolana olives (“monocultivar Tenera Ascolana”). The harvest is finely timed to take place when the fruit changes colour from green to brown/black. This happens between the beginning of October and the end of October, with an average daily harvest of 800-1000 kg. Pressing takes place within 12 hours to ensure the quality of the oil and to keep level of acidity and peroxides extremely low.

Profile Category: slightly fruity/ medium fruity The oil displays a good “fruitiness” of medium intensity or slight intensity (depending on the season), with green tones. To the nose and palate the oil has a hint of artichoke, freshly cut grass, tomato and almond. The aroma and taste are balanced and in perfect harmony.
