2020 Flos Olei Farm Score (97/100)

Nicola Fazzi was featured in the New York Times on Sunday, 28 February 2016.

From a natural area in the province of Lazio, located between the Tolfa Mountains and the Lakes, Vico and Bracciano, comes this well recognized oil. The area, also known as Tuscia, is the historic land of the Etruscans.

Over the years, we’ve had several requests for this noted olive oil. Although produced by a cooperative, and not a single-estate bottling, we’ve decided to include it on our list.

Great care is taken with same-day, continuous-cycle, first-cold pressing of quality Caninese olives. The production is carefully supervised by Agronomist Nicola Fazzi of the Colli Etruschi Cooperative in the Etruscan town of Blera. You’ll find these Cannino olives yield a bold and fruity oil. The taste is very fresh, green, grassy, herbal, and bold, without being overpowering. One may also detect an element of tomato leaves.

Colli Etruschi offers versatility and adds flavor to antipasti, pasta and vegetable dishes, and both poultry and red meat main dishes.


Nicola Fazzi has been the director of the local cooperative founded in 1965. He is shown here with his daughter, Isabella, who works with him to promote the olive oils of Colli Etruschi.
