It is not just olive oil the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Monte Alburchia. And we won’t tell you that we use secret recipes to make it so good. Its quality resides in a simple sum of factors. The altitude enhances the variety of Biancolilla olive tree which at 600 meters height produces a fragrant, intense, slightly spicy oil with very low acidity. The early harvesting, before the full maturation of the fruit, decreases the amount of olive oil produced, but it concentrates all its qualities in a few drops. Hand picking preserves the tree’s health and integrity of the fruits that we bring the mill every evening after the harvest in order to keep intact all its organoleptic qualities.
In a great kitchen the care of the ingredients is crucial, and olive oil is an essential element within the Mediterranean tradition. We’ve asked top chefs to test our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Monte Alburchia and elaborate for us a special recipe, an arrangement to the tune of Oil Monte Alburchia.
