Monini has created a Special Selection DOP (Denomination
of Protected Origin) Umbria Extra Virgin Olive Oil for
Culina. This rich, but gentle and rounded oil has been
personally selected by the Monini family from the very
best olives of the Umbria region. Carefully selected
and picked by hand, the Moraiolo, Leccino and Pendolino
olive varieties have been pressed in Monini’s
“frantoio” and bottled at the premises.
The entire process is controlled by Monini, guaranteeing
the freshness and integrity of the product.
The end result is an extra virgin olive oil with extremely
low acidity (below 0.3% free oleic acid), a high content
of polyphenols, and a smooth and balanced taste profile.
The Special Selection DOP Umbria for Culina will be
used to finish dishes, dress salads, and will also be
available for purchase to the CULINA food lovers and
