Umbria's extra virgin olive oil: a culinary masterpiece

Umbria's extra virgin olive oil is a true embodiment of Italian oleic excellence, condensing the finest products into an exceptional range. It has become a benchmark for other oils due to its evident merits stemming from two pillars of excellence: the territory and human expertise. Umbria is a blessed land where nature seems to have destined the world's finest extra virgin olive oil to thrive.

Yet, it's also a region where human action meticulously follows nature's lead to maintain this blessing. Practices like harvesting, milling, crushing, and cold-pressing adhere to a sacred ritual in Umbrian olive mills, resulting in sumptuously delicious, special oils.

Umbrian Olive Oil Triumphs in 2020's adversity

Despite a 30% production decline in the challenging 2020 harvest, Umbria's olive oil sector still shone, earning 11 companies the prestigious "Three Leaves" award, two Special Prizes, one Star, and a "Novelty of the Year" award.

The Pursuit of Perfection: from grove to bottle

The secret lies in the "Burgundy of Olive Oil" map, where mills follow the proximity concept, processing olives near their groves. These state-of-the-art mills optimize yield while adhering to stringent regulations that ensure the finest "green gold" flow.

Warmed to 28°C and swirled in the mouth before canonical bread-tasting, these oils exude fruity almond notes, sometimes blending with soft artichoke tones or the pungent aroma of fresh herbs and apples – a reflection of the land's essence imparted on the olive cultivars.
