A GREAT LOVE STORY
Colio DOP ORGANIC: for us, the best oil in the world
Colio® is unique, because it contains an authentic love story. That of men for their own land. It is Umbrian extra virgin olive oil that is the result of the Cum Gratia project that seals and supports this bond, which has as its protagonist the activity of the Compignano Foundation, born of the desire to increase the beauty of one of the most characteristic villages of the region, ensconced in woods and olive grove covered hills, and improve the quality of life of the people who live there.
An organic extra virgin olive oil with a protected designation of origin Colli Orvietani, which comes from a blend mainly obtained with three different cultivars typical of central Italy, Leccino, Moraiolo and Frantoio, to which other local varieties are added in minimal quantities.
Everything happens thanks to a precise integrated cultivation system, which consists of dedicated breeding and milling techniques.
The olives, harvested with traditional systems that guarantee the maximum integrity of the fruit and protection of the plant, are immediately squeezed through a cold mechanical process.
Characterized by innovative technologies that allow constant temperature control, the process ends with the filtration of the product and with the reuse directly in the field, as a soil improver, of plant waste. A cycle that closes completely in compliance with environmental protection protocols.
The result of this processing is a harmony of flavors, scents and colors that encloses and enhances the qualities and nuances of these varieties of olives grown in the Umbrian hills. The gentle taste of Leccino, the fruity notes of Frantoio and the slightly bitter and spicy finish of Moraiolo make Colio a product of superior, refined and exclusive quality.
A perfect synthesis between an ancient knowledge, which continuously regenerates, and the generosity of an uncontaminated territory of boundless beauty, which for centuries has kept the secret of a healthy and profound balance between human activities and nature.
What makes an Umbrian extra virgin olive oil great? Its terrain. Our centuries-old olive trees are silent witnesses of the passage of illustrious people, powerful artisans, extraordinary artists.
