Extra virgin olive oil d.o.p. canine

Superior quality oil composed for 50% of Canino cultivar, the remainder from Frantoiano, Leccino and Moraiolo.

Among our products certainly could not miss the Canino Dop oil, which has become a symbol of this extraordinary land: the upper Tuscia of Lazio. Among its hills, the Gentili company also cultivates the Caninese variety of olive, an unmistakable local cultivar with a strong and robust taste that gives a strong connotation to our Canino DOP. The peculiarity of this product lies in the right balance between the Caninese and the other cultivars (Frantoiano, Leccino and Moraiolo), which soften the taste for a final product of the highest quality. With an intense green color with golden reflections, this product is particularly pleasant and harmonious both to the nose and to the taste with a pleasant spicy aftertaste. The strong bitter charge and intense spicy tip of the Caninese are softened by the soft flavors of Leccino, Frantoiano and Moraiolo. Among the main aromas and secondary flavors of this product, the notes of aromatic herbs and artichoke tip, but also apple and almond.
