Olive tree cultivation and olive oil production dates back to the fourth century B.C. Today, extra-virgin olive oil is still the basis of our traditional, healthy Mediterranean. Fontanaro has an heritage of 5 generation of passion for this production.
For as making olive oil is our life.
The rolling Umbrian hills are the perfect territory for olive tree cultivation, mainly on our hills surrounding the Trasimeno lake where Fontanaro and Tartagli are located . Here the mild climate and the rich soil provide high organoleptic features.
Our prize-winning, extra-virgin olive oil is rated among the best in Italy by the official national guide of the Italian Association of Olive Oil Sommeliers, Slow Food, Gambero Rosso, Extraverginity.com, Culinary Institute of America, 3E and more.
Lucia Pinelli, the owner is qualified Sommellier of Olive Oil.
Our product is tested by the laboratory of the Chamber of Commerce Laboratory of Firenze every year.
The results show very low acidity and very rich in polyphenols, important for the protection of the cardio-vascular system. Our oil is a blend of Dolce Agogia, Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino olives.
Our oil has a very fruity taste with bitter and spicy notes and is very rich of unique flavours.
In our own mill, the cold press process is applied within 4 hours of the olive picking to guarantee the very best quality oil.
During the different phases of olive oil production, the temperature is kept at a constant level below 26°C, ensuring a harmonic composition of the different flavours that make our oil so special. All our guests are invited to visit the mill and to a free lesson of the art of making the best olive oil!
