Olive oil producers




 This interesting farm is situated on the hills of Brtonigla. Franco Cattunar’s main activity is wine-growing, but recently, besides typical wines, he has also started producing quality extra virgin olive oil with the support of his relatives. The olive grove extends over a surface of 3 hectares with 300 trees. In the last harvest 60 quintals of olives were produced, with a yield of 7 hectolitres of oil.  

Flos Olei recommends the very good Extra Virgin Cattunar, which is a beautiful intense limpid golden yellow colour with delicate green hues. Its aroma is clean and rotund, rich in fruity hints of unripe tomato and almond, together with fragrant notes of basil, mint and rosemary. Its taste is complex and elegant, with a vegetal flavour of artichoke and chicory, lettuce and celery. Bitterness is definite and pungency is distinct and harmonic.

Number of trees: 300
