COLIO: PROPERTIES AND VARIETIES
COLIO® CUM GRATIA Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced exclusively with Italian olives of DOP UMBRIA Colli Orvietani cultivars, which give a green oil with yellow reflections and is characterized by a light fruity aroma and a balanced taste. An oil rich in unsaturated fats. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats in the diet contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Oleic acid is an unsaturated fat.
THE TERRITORY OF PRODUCTION
The olives with which we produce extra virgin olive oil come from the olive trees located on the rolling Umbrian hills around Compignano, in Fecciaine, where the Augusto Coli Farm has restored ancient abandoned centuries-old olive groves and planted new ones, has equipped itself with modern olive cultivation plants, and has created an oil mill for milling on its own. The territory is characterized by a mild climate and the soil is of good fertility and medium gradation: sand, lime and clay are produced by the calcareous terrain.
The production takes place scrupulously adhering to the disciplinary of the DOP Umbria. But not only: no chemical treatment is used and the fertilizers are only of organic origin, thus avoiding impoverishing the soil and polluting the aquifers. The soil is in fact fertilized with organic fertilizers. If necessary, drip irrigation is provided and mechanical processing is carried out to control weeds. Against insects harmful to the health of the plant (of which the olive fly represents the worst danger), only products of natural origin such as copper or attractive baits for such insects are used.
