The author of psalm 104 might be the right person to ask, because in verses 14 and 15 he writes:
He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate - bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their heart.
What did he mean? Was he referring to olive oil as fuel for lighting? Or as ointment for body care? Or simply as foodstuff? We don’t actually know the right answer, but we fully share this statement every time we taste our extra virgin olive oil: whether it’s a slice of bread or a gourmet meal makes no difference-- they both show it’s not just a salad dressing!
This evo oil comes solely from the moraiolo cultivar. The olive grove area called chiusa dei frati has always produced the best extra virgin olive oil, thanks to its well-drained soil, optimal exposure to sunlight and very heathy trees. It is our flagship product, with a strong personality, and it deservedly claims a starring role.
Blend of moraiolo, frantoio and leccino. Its name means tradition and care: Manacco was one of the old sharecroppers living on the farm, and he used the namesake chiusa to produce oil for his family. It is a combination of unique tastes and scents coming from the most famous cultivars in the region.
