“Il Sincero” is an oil produced exclusively from the Moraiolo olive grown in the S. Eraclio di Foligno area of Umbria and is the oldest and primary variety of olive grown on the stony hillside of Viola estate. The fruit is harvested by hand in October at the beginning stage of ripeness, producing an extra virgin olive oil with a unique, intense flavor typical of this variety. This robust oil pairs remarkably well with pork fillet, grilled game, bitter green salads and pulses. It is also excellent drizzled on toasted bread, mature cheeses and citrus sorbets.

The area between Assisi and Spoleto in central Umbria, surrounded by majestic olive trees, has been the backdrop of the Viola family business since the 19th century. Here the Viola family has been cultivating olives and producing oil for generations. Today Marco Viola continues the family tradition and uses the most modern technologies. Aware of working in such a sensitive and vital sector as is the food industry, the company takes great care to develop and promote the principles of ethical conduct within their business as well as the environment, and to provide the best quality product to the consumer. Each oil is the result of a hard year's work which begins in the olive grove and ends in their oil mill. The cultivation, harvest and processing of the olives are carried out following the family's traditions, all of which contribute to make an oil for the discerning customer who is very selective and able to appreciate the oil's aroma and taste, which are the flavors of Umbria.
