Intosso Olive Oil

This native olive variety originates from the picturesque slopes of the Maiella Mountain, which stands as a symbol of our beloved Abruzzo region. Its true essence is most beautifully expressed in Casoli, where it finds its ideal home. However, we have also taken it upon ourselves to cultivate around 400 of these unique olive trees in Francavilla Al Mare (CH), just a stone’s throw away from the sea. While it may not be the olive tree’s native habitat, it still manages to produce an extra virgin olive oil of remarkable prestige. Each one of our trees is carefully nurtured in the Polyconic Vase method. Although the sea’s proximity presents challenges, this dual-purpose variety, suitable for both table and oil production, is susceptible to olive fly attacks. Vigilance is key, as a lapse in care can jeopardize the final product. We remain ever vigilant in our olive groves to prevent any unpleasant surprises, as we understand that prevention is paramount.
