THE QUALITY OF OUR OIL:
Our oil is characterized by its light green color and by the net fruity aroma of olive: light, fresh and lively with fine sensations of light and spicy bitterness.
It is made sweeter by the climate of the area mitigated by the waters of Lake Trasimeno and by the Agogia (native cultivar), which marries Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo.
Its perfect balance makes it ideal for the enhancement of cuisine in general, and in particular for fish, confirming with this use, not only the agricultural but also the cultural value of the “Oro del Trasimeno”.
