The lucky mixture of young and secular olive trees, give the chance to produce an high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Colli Amerini Umbria POD olive oil certification.
The Umbria PDO Colli Amerini EVOO is one of the certified excellence results from a unique combination of human and environmental factors that certifies the quality.
This kind of extra virgin olive oil is obtained thanks to a blending with Moraiolo at 15%, Rajo, Leccino and Frantoio at maximus 85%.
It has a medium-light fruity with hints of artichoke confirmed to a bitter taste in the same intensity.
Rajo EVOO is a rare single variety, which comes from the milling of olives of the centuries-old olive grove Rajo, autochthonous and typical of the Amerino area.
Thanks to Virgilio and its works, we discover that it has been known since the roman period, and the roman call it radius because of the shape of its fruit.
The tree can reach a remarkable size and from its black fruits it is obtained a yellow and green oil with a slightly bitter taste.
