From the Val d’Orcia hills, Maurino is a special cultivar yielding this very unusual extra virgin olive oil.

Characteristics of this variety
Typical of Maurino oil is an intense floral fragrance which distinguishes it from all other Tuscan varieties and brings to mind the intense scents of the Mediterranean bush, such as sage, wild mint and rosemary. These notes of freshness are confirmed in the flavor on the palate. Maurino extra virgin olive oil also provides a pleasant sensation of green tomatoes and a tardy pungency in the throat.


Recommended combinations
Maurino oil combines perfectly with fish dishes, as well as with “fragrant” recipes such as fennel, orange and fresh pecorino cheese, carpaccio, cold rice salads and baked tomatoes.

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

We suggest that you also plan a visit to the estate on an upcoming trip to Italy. Farmhouses and apartments may be rented and there is a central restaurant for guests where the olive oils may be tasted!
