Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Terra Di Rovo 500ml
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml - Terra di Rovo
Terra Di Rovo Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blend comes from 250 centenarian olive trees of the Moraiolo and Leccino varieties. The first is characterized by an intense aroma of artichoke and green beans, while the second has light notes of green almonds and meadow grass.
The organic olive grove is pruned every year by hand, while the land is left grassy to allow the biodiversity of this land to prosper undisturbed.
Our Organic EVOO comes exclusively from olives harvested between October and November at the beginning of the screening process, to keep the level of polyphenols, antioxidants and free radicals as high as possible.
Once harvested by hand, the olives are taken to the oil mill within a few hours and cold-pressed.
After the pressing process, the extra virgin olive oil is lightly filtered, immediately bottled and kept to rest in the dark and at a controlled temperature.

Terra di Rovo - Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Natural Wines
Terra di Rovo is born from the strong bond that has always linked me to my land – the Spoletino in Umbria – an extraordinary landscape of uncontaminated and wild nature, made fascinating by its variegated biodiversity. Here lies my small plot of land: a quiet and green-shrouded place that excites and at the same time surprises, where I dedicate myself to the production of natural wine of Umbria and pure organic extra virgin olive oil. Nature is free to express herself here, luxuriant and undisturbed; blackberries, broom and wildflowers grow everywhere, forming a green and mysterious tangle of branches and leaves.
Based exclusively on the concept of minimum intervention on the ground, I cultivate the vineyard and the olive grove in a totally sustainable way without resorting to pesticides or chemical fertilizers: the result is an authentic natural wine with spontaneous fermentation and a certified organic olive oil of excellence. In the vineyard, as well as in the olive grove, I pick the fruits by hand, allowing the fruit to preserve its taste and its authenticity whilst guaranteeing a natural wine and an exclusive olive oil.
Throughout the year, I pay attention to the phases of the moon, not only in the field but also in the cellar and in the mill, with absolute respect for the nature and its ancient rural methods. Each year the vineyard – composed of Cabernet Sauvignon and Trebbiano Spoletino vines – and the centuries-old olive grove of Moraiolo and Leccino are left free to express themselves and gift what most wonderful varieties they can produce.
Because there is nothing purer than what grows naturally.
