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

Characteristics of this monovarietal oil, Moraiolo

The Moraiolo oil presents the most typically marked Tuscan aroma in the nose, with a clear scent of bitter olives. In the mouth the persistent and bitter tastes of artichoke, thistle and again of bitter olives prevail. The pungency is slightly belated but very intense, reminiscent of chili pepper.

Recommended pairings
Because of its intensity Moraiolo oil is appropriate on recipes with strong tastes, such as “ribollita”, black cabbage soups, grilled meats and vegetables, and “fagioli all’uccelletto” (beans with tomato and sausage). It is at its best on “caciucco”, the well-known fish soup from Livorno.

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!
