Monastero Suore Cistercensi Olive Oil
From their monastery in Vitorchiano, Monastero Suore Cistercensi, a sisterhood of about 80 nuns, work their land to produce this “Superiore” olive oil. Sourced from five varieties of olive – local Canino, Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, and Maurino, this robust and rustic olive oil is a way to experience life through the lense of these incredible Sisters. The resulting oil is fragrant, revealing a deep green color and rich polyphenol content.
Olive varieties: Canino, Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, and Maurino
