Cultivar and Characteristics
Each vintage of olive oil has unique characteristics, tastes and fragrances depending on the harvest. Due to the use of natural farming methods, the climate and other environmental variables have a direct impact on the olive fruits harvested each autumn.
For 2015, the harvest from the estate in San Leolino is mainly of the Moraiolo cultivar. The oil is bright green with a vibrant and spicy taste, with notes of artichoke, cut grass, and ripe tomato.
