Gold Award - 2021 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition

First Place - 2021 Der Feinschmecker "Slightly Fruity"

From the Val d’Orcia hills, each of the variety of olives at Chiarentana is hand picked separately as they mature. The olives are then immediately ground at the press on the estate at Chiarenta and La Foce.
Confini is a blend of 5 varieties from nearby Umbria, which were planned for experimental purposes (hardiness and flavor). Owing to the limited number of plants of each, the varieties were picked and pressed separately, and the oils blended later, thus producing a surprisingly flavor-rich blend with an additional aroma of ripe tomato leaves.

Recommended combinations
Because of its unique flavor, Confini is in addition to practically any recipe, to which it will bring a "different" flavor. Notes of almonds and artichokes call out for roasted meats, roasted or grilled vegetables, hearty soups, and anywhere you want to add a depth of flavor.

Der Feinschmecker, Gambero Rosso, Slow Food and Merum have all bestowed significant prizes on the oils from Chiarentana.
