For four generations, the Frantoio Tini has handed down the art of a high-quality extra virgin olive oil. Nestled in the hills of Abruzzo, the farm is currently managed with passion by Carmine Tini and his family. Their oils are a perfect combination between tradition and innovation: only the best local olives within 20km are artisanally processed in modern mills, so as to preserve all the properties of this precious fruit.
The Frantoio Tini’s productions are an artwork in name and in fact. Botticelli, Leonardo, Caravaggio, Giotto, Tintoretto, Mantegna and Bernini: the seven types of oil are named after some of the most important Italian painters and sculptors.Thanks to the colourful packaging and the authentic taste of 100% Italian olive oil, receiving a bottle of this oil is a unique experience in which all the senses are involved. The quality of Frantoio Tini is recognized nationally and internationally. The company was selected in the Leone d’Oro International Olive Oil Competition and included in the prestigious guides Flos Olei and Oli d’Italia by Gambero Rosso.
Among the extra virgin olive oils, Mantegna is a medium-intense fruity oil, produced with local olives belonging to the italian variety Leccio del Corno. They are harvested at the right level of ripeness and cold-pressed within 4 hours, so as to preserve all the properties of this fruit.
As a result the oil has both a pleasant taste and aroma, with vegetal notes of artichoke, lettuce and chicory. The bitterness and the spiciness are strong and persistent but not disturbing. We recommend pairing it with simple dishes such as starters based on legumes, tomato salad or potatoes. Also ideal for dressing soups, fish and white meat.
