Monocultivar or monovarietal means that a single olive variety was used in making the extra virgin olive oil. Our Monocultivar is made from 100% Moraiolo olives, considered among the most renowned varieties produced in Italy. The Moraiolo olive tree is indigenous to central Italy, requires hilly terrain, and is best suited for mountain climates. It ripens to a black-violet color and tends to be high in polyphenols, which contributes to it’s spicy bitterness
Palate: complex and intriguing, intense green fruity flavor with a fresh taste of grass, artichoke, and chicory.
