Del Carmine’s olive trees in Ancona are enriched with the saltiness of the wind from the sea, and yet are protected by the hills from the north wind. These are ideal conditions for a good harvest. Del Carmine proceeds with the precious harvest when the olives begin to change color. The olives are taken to the mill in for processing within 4-6 hours. The modern continuous-cycle olive-press, located close to the olive grove, completes the production cycle of the well regarded extra virgin olive oil.

Azienda del Carmine grows both olives and grapes (for their notable Verdicchio di Matelica DOC) and the enclosed valley runs north to south. This growing area is unique among the valleys of the Marche region, as the others open towards the Adriatic. The climate is continental with cold winters, hot summers and a wide daily temperature range; this microclimate enhances the characteristics of the vine and the olive trees.

Antonio and Antonella Roversi work in partnership to guide the successes at Azienda Del Carmine. They have developed products with a strong personality. For olive oil aficionados, the “single varieties” are exceptional. Each is extracted from a single variety – Frantoio, Leccino, Ascolana, FS-17 – in which you find the purity of Olio de la Marchia. Here we have selected three bottles for the Adriatic Trio Gift Set. Gift Boxed.

Leccino is regarded as a sweeter and more delicate olive. The aroma is elegant with light hints of grass. It is ideal with white fish, meats, pesto, spring vegetables, and plain rice. It is also a good choice for baking. 

Olio del Carmine
is a blend of Leccino, Frantoio, Pendolino, and Carboncella olives. Medium fruity and green with aromas of fresh grass, almond, and the leaf of tomato. The flavor is persistent with both sweet and spicy characteristics.

FS-17 or Favalosa is robust, green, herbaceous and spicy. Related to the Frantoio cultivar, producers have been experimenting with this olive since the 1970s. This cultivar is resistant to common olive pests, cold and water stress, and has an excellent pulp-stone ratio, for a good production of olive oil. The olive is one of low acidity, where richness and fragrance are well balance, with a spicy fruitiness that elevates many foods.
