Colline di Romagna PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil

An intense flavour that is born in the heart of Romagna.

1 minute

From those hills covered with olive groves between the territories of Forlì-Cesena and Rimini, the Colline di Romagna PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil is born.

A totally natural cultivation, combined with the particular climatic conditions of the territory and the harvest, mostly still manual, give rise to an olive oil that is particularly prized for its remarkable chemical and organoleptic properties.

The union of different cultivars

The union of different cultivars

The skilful union of different cultivars (Correggiolo, Leccino, Pendolino, Moraiolo and Rossina), give rise to a light, aromatic and pleasant oil, with a bitter aftertaste.

Even before Rome, the Etruscans were already cultivating olive trees in this part of Romagna and since then, it has continued uninterruptedly to the present day.

The strong technological innovations of the twentieth century, including the agricultural sector, had a considerable impact on olive growing and, favouring a considerable increase, both in production and in the quality of the product and set in motion a process that led, in 2003, to the recognition of the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).

In the autumn - from 20 October to 15 December - the manually harvested olives are processed within 24-48 hours. After a process of defoliation and washing, they are ground thus obtaining the precious local PDO.
