Arriving May 2021.
Tenuta Sant’Ilario is a farm located between the sea and the mountains, and stands on a green hill overlooking the sea. It was founded in 1982 and, although it has grown in technology and manufacturing, it has always remained a small, family run business.
Tortiglione is an ancient heirloom olive variety that is widespread in the areas of Teramo and part of Pescara. The name “tortiglione”, or twisted, comes from its clockwise tortile trunk of the olive trees. The tortiglione olive is not suited to mechanical harvesting, it bruises and tears easily, so it is always harvested by hand. The variety is recognized as Biennial bearing, and thus may not be made in every year. Tortiglione olives are late ripening, providing an oil rich in polyphenols (antioxidants), which indicates high quality. This varietal typically has a spicy flavor profile.
This extra virgin olive oil is 100% Tortiglione
