The best for passion
Extra virgin olive oil and quality research are the sincere expression of our experience
True authenticity of the olives of our land
The passion for authentic flavors and experience in the sector guide Itoliva in the careful and meticulous selection of the best Italian cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
Our oils contain delicious flavors of our present and fruit of the experience of the past. The quality is immediately perceivable: the unique taste of this oil reveals all the freshness of the olives.
The specialization in the selection and research of the best fruit, kept in the typical Apulian jars, leads to the birth of a unique product: a perfect combination of refinement and tradition.
From the field to the table for an authentic taste
Each Italian extra virgin olive oil contained in our jars tells a path made of immediately perceivable quality that reveals the intact flavor and freshness of the olives. The oils available are different and are made to meet the most diverse tastes from the lighter fruity to the more intense, which happily match your favorite dishes.
If the other European countries with an olive-growing vocation have 50 to 70 cultivars, in Italy the varieties reach more than 400.
The criterion of classification of cultivars, in addition to the specificity of the territory that determines specific organoleptic and nutritional characteristics, consists in identifying the "use" that the olives are destined for.
There are actually cultivars from oil (destined therefore to be only transformed into oil), table cultivars (table olives destined to be preserved and used in various ways) and finally olives that have a double use: table and oil.
Italian cultivars are generally linked to a well-defined area, on the map we have listed only some of the main varieties divided by region.
