Two words aboutItalian Extra Virgin Olive Oil Basilio
In Giano All’Umbria, the olive tree finds a particularly favorable microclimate. In 1888 the area cultivated with olive trees was almost 50% of the territorial area. Here an autochthonous variety is cultivated, which gives a fruity, slightly bitter oil with delicate herbaceous notes.
Basilio Pompiji was Claudia´s uncle, a vicarial Cardinal who was based in Giano since the first half of the nineteenth Century.
Basilio italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is dedicated to him; it is obtained from Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and San Felice, olives harvested in Octobre.
About Oro di Giano
¨When you find yourself in front of a Woman (with a big W!) that knows who she is, what she wants, unapologetic, brave and adventurous, than you know you have found a producer who you can trust, that stays true to her own land.
Claudia took on a challenge and, boy she is doing great!
After taking over the family land only five years ago, she made her own Italian EVOO with olives from Umbria for the first time and since then, she has managed to position her oils within the bests, receiving awards straight away, including from Gambero Rosso. She has also started to make honey, cereals and legumes ‘just for fun’ but the result of all her products is nothing but serious¨.
