Riccardo Altamura has been cultivating olives for 20 years on his four hectares of land, with a total of 1200 vines. It is in the heart of the Umbrian region, a generous and still preserved land, that Ricardo applies all his discipline and his sense of detail. The soil of his estate is well ventilated, and the terraced hills make this orchard an ideal place for the precious olive tree. ​

This lot is one of the most remarkable that Riccardo is known for. Selected for its purity, this oil is authentic, smooth and tasty.​
