Alfonso Priorelli Organic Umbrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Tin
This oil is comes from the milling of three types of organically grown olive: moraiolo, leccino and frantoio, all picked from the start of November. The certificate given by the ICEA regards entire production line, which is completely controlled by the farm. The final product is an oil with a delicate aroma and a flavor characterized by sweet sensations with a hint of piquancy.

Made with 100% Umbrian, Italian, Organic Olives.

In 1890, at the age of 20, Alfonso Priorelli inherited Podere Castagna Alta Estate from his father. This stunning estate is the "Green Heart" of Umbria amidst the hills of Assisi, Gubbio and Perugia. The estate had seen better days, but the land was good thanks to its clay soil and southern facing slopes providing the ideal conditions for olive growing, in particular frantoio, moraiolo, leccino and dolce agogia. Alfonso reclaimed the land and the 18th century olive trees and planted more. Eventually he reaped his rewards by creating the perfect oil that he called "my green oil".

Today Podere Castagna is run by Alfonso's great grandsons, Massimo and Paolo Pencelli. They planted more trees and have modernized the facility but have remained true to their great grandfather's goal of creating the perfect oil. Their labels are one of a kind, to remember and celebrate their origins Massimo and Paolo decided to use real pictures from the family album.
They have been a certified organic farm since 1997.
