The olive groves of Tignale, overlooking the lake, with their native varieties, produce an oil with valuable characteristics.
The morphology of the territory, from the terraces with their typical dry stone walls and the distribution of the plants in small, narrow and steep plots, have preserved the olive groves from mechanization, but make the production of olives limited and expensive. If not valorised and protected the production was destined to become confused and to be lost.
In 1998 the Società Agricola Cooperativa Latteria Turnaria of Tignale therefore decided to maximize the quality of organic extra virgin olive oil by improving the cultivation, harvesting and milling techniques of the drupes.
The organic extra virgin olive oil from Latteria Turnaria di Tignale, rich in polyphenols, presents itself to the palate with hints of lively, bitter and spicy flavours, which are dissolved in the final sweet note. The scent of fresh olive and artichoke accentuates its freshness characteristics.
