These medium-sized olives are grown on the estate of Olio Quattrociocchi and are picked later in the harvest when deep purple in color. The olives, soaked in brine, have a mild, slightly sweet flavor ideal for snacks and appetizers or adding to any dish.
Since 1888 the Quattrociocchi family has been dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees, handing down the tradition and passion generation after generation. The farm, still the residence of the Quattrociocchi family, is situated among organic olive groves on the sunny hills of Alatri in the heart of Ciociaria. Today the Quattrociocchi family produces some of the best extra virgin olive oils on the worldwide market, gaining international recognition and receiving prestigious awards such as the Hercules OLIVARO, the International Prize BIOL, and given the ÛÏBest Quality PrizeÛ by the editors of Marco OreggiaÛªs 2012 Flos Olei guidebook as well as being rated a ÛÏTop FarmÛ with a score of 96/100.
