Extra virgin olive oil
Pure Colline is very delicate oil that on the nose expresses hints of yellow fruit and broom flowers. In the mouth it is very clear, tasty and gentle. The finish is reminiscent of garden vegetables with an unusual spicy note that veers to ginger. A beautifully balanced mouth, clean and full of taste.
The name is a tribute to the poet Eugenio Montale whose poetry has ennobled the simplest things of Italian culture and is inspired by the verses “Pure colline chiudevano d’intorno marina e case; ulivi le vestivano qua e là disseminati come greggi…” (“Yet hills surrounded shore and houses; olives dressed them, scattered here and there like herds…”) from the poem ‘End of Childhood’ in the collection ‘Cuttlefish bones’.
