Region: Calabria Monocultivar: Ottobratica
An ancient cultivar indigenous and exclusive to Calabria. So old, this cultivar was harvested in the 8th month, Ottobre (October), back when there were only ten, thus its name Ottobratica.
Its aroma is delicately fruity, vigorous and persistent with notes of fresh herbs with a scent of wild cardoon and ripe golden apple.
Awarded by the Flos Olei as the top Monocultivar of 2020. This cultivar is found in all 6 olive oils we produce.
