IN ANTIQUITY, THIS LAND WAS CULTIVATED BY THE ETRUSCANS. Located in Spoleto in the heart of Umbria, Melchiorri has been in the market now for more than 40 years. Harsh climatic conditions here are not good for large-scale production, but the yield is of high quality. The olives are hand-harvested between October and December and milled on the same day. They follow the traditions of the harvest and selection of the olives and conclude with the crushing and extraction by careful craftsmen in modern and sophisticated mills.

CULTIVARS: 50% Frantoio, 25% Moraiolo, 25% Leccino.

NOTES: This olive oil has a mild fruity taste balanced by the spiciness and bitterness of the oil. It has a medium to robust pungency. There is a hint of cinnamon and warm spice.
