THE NEW OIL 2008
Last week we visited the CIPOLLONI frantoio to sample the new oil. CIPOLLONI is located outside of Foligno, and initially I was worried that their oil wouldn't be the spicy mix of moraiolo and other olives we like so much. The man who was our guide immediately put my mind at ease by telling me they used 80-90% moraiolo, so I knew we'd like their oil!
Although we've seen the process many times before, it's still fun to see the olives go in one end of the building and eventually come out as oil at the other! This oil was so green....and delicious!
