Olive trees cover many of Umbria's low-lying hills, giving the landscape that particular silvery green colour. Olives grow in a specific environment where, helped by the skills of the local inhabitants and the weather, they produce the region's famed high quality extra virgin olive oil.
The different high-quality organic cultivations are differentiated according to soil, the taste of the oil and the methods adopted. All these factors represent a guarantee, which is expressed by D.O.P label: Umbria appellation contr˘lÚe.

Extra virgin olive oil in the province of Perugia
A unique taste, a pleasant aroma and a dark green colour are the key-features of local olive oil, highly prized on account its low acidity level (less than 1% and sometimes even close to 0%). The environmental conditions, the weather, the exposure to the sun and the nature of soil contribute to the high-quality of local oil. Bruschetta is the best way to taste olive oil. It is a slice of local toasted bread rubbed with a clove of garlic and soaked in olive oil.
