About the Monocultivar
Monocultivar or monovarietal means that only one 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. We harvest early when the olives contain the highest level of polyphenols, which contributes to its spicy bitterness.
Harvest Date: 10/2022
Always harvested early, always harvested by hand. We begin early in the season, when the olives contain the highest level of polyphenols and antioxidants, and we put the harvest date right on the bottle.
How to use this EVOO
100% Italian. 100% Umbrian
Olivando’s olive oil comes from one place only; Umbria. This region produces only around 2% of Italy’s olive oil, but it’s well established as some of the best on the planet.
