THE BALANCE OF THE BEST ETRUSCAN CRUS
A Cru is the oil obtained from a single variety (mono-varietal) olive tree in a specific olive grove according to the practice invented in France for the great wines of Burgundy and Champagne. At I&P we produce mono-varietal oils from many varieties
In particular: the Caninese, Frantoio, Itrana, Leccino, Maurino, Pendolino, Rosciola. The Caninese variety is native to Tuscia, (from which we are dependent) and all the others are typical of the central area of the Etruscan civilization.
Every year from our Crus we choose those that together can produce a very balanced blend of aromas, flavors, spicy and bitter.
Hence the name Cru dei Cru. In this way we create an oil of great harmony suitable to underline the best characteristics of each dish.
