Producer: Colli Etruschi
The Colli Etruschi cooperative houses over 40,000 olive trees, situated on 2000 acres of fertile soil in northern Lazio. Specializing in the local Caninese cultivar, the cooperative is renowned for both the quality of its oils and careful stewardship of its land.
There's more to this central Italian region than the iconic ruins of Rome -- ancient villages abound in its lush countryside, and port towns on the Tyrrhenian sea hold a fascinating history of their own. Lazio is famed for its pork products, and its celebrated dishes include guanciale and spaghetti alla carbonara.
