With our olives we only produce extra-virgin olive oil and, at the time of harvesting, the fruit is carefully selected by hand. This care means that every olive-oil season tells the story of the uniqueness of the year’s production but at the same time maintains our production philosophy and the high quality of our oil. Our olive groves, immersed in unspoiled nature among woods and meadows, enjoy the enchanting sunsets of Lake Trasimeno every day … and that is how harmony and purity become flavour and scent.
Beyond competitions and brands, which carry the risk of trivializing the uniqueness and unrepeatable nature of oil production according to tradition, typicity and nature, tasting our product is the best way to realize the passion, care and attention that we devote to it every day, from pruning the trees and caring for the land to harvesting and processing the olives.
Tasting extra-virgin olive oil above all requires common sense: there is no need to turn to professional expertise and unpalatable terminology which distort the pleasure of simply enjoying a good food. A few technical notions may nevertheless help to note the characteristics of the oil you have in front of you. The three steps suggested by the experts are look, smell and taste.
Visual An extra-virgin olive oil should show a mid-to-low degree of fluidity. High fluidity is typical of oils with a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as seed oils. A green/yellow colour is a symptom of early or mature harvesting of the fruit.
Smell A more or less intense nose of olive and perhaps of vegetable, fruit or grass provides sufficient elements for you to be satisfied.
Taste The taste test identifies some basic flavours: bitter, sweet, sour and salty. It should be carried out very calmly, trying to memorize the maximum number of sensations.
