YOU NEED GREAT OLIVES TO MAKE GREATER EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS
Nestled among the hills of Colletorto in Italy sit almost 60,000 century-old Gentile Nera olive trees, a unique variety native to the region. The locals call it “the culinary diamond of Molise region”, and it is the key to the unique flavour of Timperio extra virgin olive oil and other products. Each handpicked olive provides an evocative, high quality oil rich in antioxidants and low in acidity, making it not just great for your taste buds, but a healthy addition to any meal.
The Gentile Nera olives of Colletorto, and the extra virgin olive oil made from them, are registered under Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Molise® scheme. This is a European Union acknowledged framework that guarantees Timperio olive oils are produced using the traditional production methods of Molise district. The characteristic qualities of the olive oil products are, in essence, due to its place of origin, microclimate, and local know-how.
