Named The Farm of the Year by Flos Olei 2015 and The Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Organic Farming, Flos Olei 2014.

98 rating by Flos Olei 2017

The Quattrociocchi family has been growing olives since the year 1888, their passion handed down through generations. The family farm, the Quattrociocchi home for generations, is located among centuries old olive groves on the Alatri hills, in the heart of the Ciociaria area of Lazio, southeast of Rome.

The olive grove spans approximately 120 hectares and with 34,000 trees of the Moraiolo, Leccino, and Itrana varieties. Olivastro is a monocultivar oil, composed solely of Itrana olives. The oil is certified organic.

The entire product processing cycle takes place on the farm which sets the standards for organic family: from growing and harvesting the olives to the crushing, all steps are completed directly in the farm’s own oil mill. The oil is then stored in steel silos, where it remains until bottling.

A light green oil with golden notes. It is intensely fruity with elements of fresh herbs enhanced by notes of cardoon and green tomato. Bitterness and spiciness are well balanced, yet the spicy characteristic is persistent.
