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. Moraiolo 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
