description

Marco Viola is the 4th generation to care for the trees at the family farm in Umbria. He crafts Il Sincero with an eye toward the amazing characteristics of the Moraiolo olive. His age-old trees grow rocky soil on hillsides near Sant'Eraclio Foligno in the province of Perugia. The trees are hand-pruned in late winter/early spring and harvested in the months of October and November. 

Flos Olei 2019 Olive Oil of the Year

Truly in the green heart of Italy, Marco is a master at coaxing amazing results from his olives. The Il Sincero selection is one of six single-cultivars included in the Opera Olei Tasting Set. 

This new selection, Il Sincero, is full bodied with herbaceous notes of thistle and the balsamic scent of mint, basil, and rosemary. 

The taste will fill the mouth with hints of thistle, black pepper, aided by almond on the finish. 

Meet your match. Ideal food pairings include bean soup, chickpea cream with toasted bread, larded pork fillet, and salad of wild greens. Adventurous pair this with roasted game including hare and pigeon great with sweet pepper sauce. Marco recommends this with medium mature cheeses, and also with orange or tangerine sorbets.
