“Sincero is one of my favorite intense fruit Extra Virgin Olive Oils for that matter every one of the Olive Oils from Viola are lovely. There are no slackers in this book. Their COLLERUITA-DOP Umbria Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is available on our Crossroads Food & Wine site (just click the Home link) was named the top olive oil in the world in 2015 by the Flos Olei Guide. I have been enjoying and selling these EVOOs for about 8 years now. Viola’s goals are to produce EVOO of a quality that competes with the world’s best and year after year they are right up there at the top of the lists. I use them liberally for a variety of purposes but they are bigger on average which makes them the ultimate finishing oils… pour them on everything.” …Uncle Jerry
“Between Assisi and Spoleto, Foligno hills, covered with majestic olive trees, have always been the background to my family business; the foliage of these age-old trees paints this land green in every season.
Our farm, with about 14 hectares of olive groves, is set at an average altitude of 350 to 500 meters above sea level and there are about 5,000 olive trees in the moraiolo, frantoio and leccino varieties.
Recently, thanks to the collaboration with some local growers, we have managed to increase our olive production, reaching an extension of sixty hectares with about 22,000 olive trees.
The trees grow on sunny steep slopes; the chalky and stony soil, the mild, windy and moderately damp climate make this area ideal for olive growing.” Marco Viola
