Gold Medal, Monocultivar, Japan Olive Oil Prize 2021

Grande Olio Slow - Slow Food 2021

The gold label indicates Ortice is the Cru selection at Monserrato in Campania. The olive groves are located in the area of Francesca, a few kilometers outside of the city of Benevento.

The grove is on a gentle hillside with southern exposure, and the rows run north to south. This setting aids in keeping the soil warm and steady for the olive trees.

Ortice is a monocultivar and is well known in the area of Sannio. The characteristics include the fruitiness of medium intensity, accompanied by herbaceous elements, and notes of green almonds, unripe tomato, artichoke and fruit.

The olfactory profile is complex, yielding pleasant bitterness, the taste of artichokes and tomatoes, and a lively spicy finish.

We can think of many dishes that are enhanced by Ortice. Roasted meats and vegetables come to mind, as well as steamed spinach, broccoli and cauliflower.
