Alfonso Priorelli 100% Umbrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Tin
This oil is created from three varieties of olive: moraiolo, leccino and frantoio. The combination of this Umbrian blend of olives and the milling of them when they are perfectly ripe, establish the character of this oil, noteworthy for its refined aroma and delicate, fruity flavor.

In 1890, at the age of 20, Alfonso Priorelli inherited Podere Castagna Alta Estate from his father. This stunning estate is in 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.
