Extra-virgin olive oil DOP Umbria “Colli Amerini”
Over the protected territory known as the “path of oil” in Umbria, on the rolling Amerini hills is where our olives are grown. We extract our oil FenOlio exclusively from our own olives.
The oil is rich in polyphenols, powerful natural anti-oxidants with high levels of vitamin E capable of opposing the damaging effects of free radicals.
The quality of FenOlio isn’t merely characterized by the low level of acidity, but by a number of organoleptic qualities achieved through impeccable production processes.
The exceptional quality of this product derives from an accurate selection of organic local olive tree groves. It is a result of a constant and careful meticulousness applied throughout the olive transformation process; defoliation and cleansing as fundamental work model contribute to higher standards of hygiene throughout the process, while harvest and storage occur extremely speedily in order to avoid fermentation thus fully preserving the taste properties.
The traditional method of pressing entails a temperature over 26C° which prevents damage to the phenolic concentration and fully preserves the nutritional value, while elevating the fruit’s genuineness and the essence of its taste. (our Fenolio must be impeccable, perfect to the palate preserving its original taste. For this reason each stage of the process adheres to rigid quality criteria).
Fenolio is the Extra-virgin olive oil (DOP) made from fresh fruit from the prestigious area of the Amerini hills. An enchanted landscape of mountains and woods, valleys of rolling hills, emblem of Umbria, “the green heart of Italy.”
This area is celebrated for the quality of its oil. Set among a path of picturesque, hilltop towns overlooking fields of olive trees, cradle of a past of ancient castles and medieval citadels.
