The family that runs the Tenute Salmareggi have the mantra – preserve, ensure, evolve. They maintain their existing trees; have converted to organic farming; work with highly skilled specialists in the field; choose innovative techniques for cultivation to ensure sustainable development; have the utmost respect for the environment and their staff; and they share their multi-disciplinary decision-making processes.
This evo oil comes solely from the moriaiolo cultivar. The olive grove area called chiusa dei frati has always produced the best extra virgin olive oil, thanks to its well-drained soil, optimal exposure to sunlight and very heathy trees. It is their flagship product, with a strong personality, and it deservedly claims a starring role.
Bright green shades. Sweet sensations of pine nut and chive to the nose. Bitter sensations to the mouth, but never pervasive and well balanced. To be enjoyed on a pea puree with croutons and to prepare a “torta della nonna” custard cake.
