San Pietro a Pettine
Extra virgin olive oil (EVO) is a typical Italian product with a unique taste and an unmistakable appearance that is famous and appreciated all over the world.
Its golden color varies from yellow to green depending on the type of fruit used and the intense taste is characterized by numerous nuances, which make it the undisputed protagonist of many Italian dishes that belong to the Mediterranean diet.
In addition to fulfilling the requirement of an excellent taste, EVO oil offers the consumer a quality guarantee essential for good health: the presence of unsaturated fatty acids in EVO provide valuable elements for the control of cholesterol in the blood, which safeguard the organism from metabolic disorders.
