This olive oil belongs to a superior category.
The DOP certification is available only for extra virgin olive oil in which the Caninese, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino and Frantoio varieties are singly or severally present and account for one hundred percent of the cultivars in the groves.
Olio Extravergine d'Oliva Canino has a maximum acidity of 0.50 percent, and is emerald green in colour with tones of gold. Its flavour is reminiscent of wholesome fresh fruit plucked at the moment of perfect ripeness. The flavour is robust, and there is a bitter and peppery aftertaste. The olives destined for the production of Olio Extravergine d'Oliva Canino must be grown within the Canino district of the province of Viterbo.
