The aim of my project is to honour the land of Umbria through the production of what I like to call “Extreme Oils”. Extra virgin olive oils that are fruit of dedication and respect for our traditional wisdom, borne from trees growing in craggy terrain that yield but a few thousand bottles… and enormous satisfaction!
Our olive tree groves extend across Campello sul Clitunno, Spoleto e Trevi, in the heart of Umbria, with about 40 hectares, at an altitude of 300 – 600 m. a.s.l.
They provide fruits for an oil of an extremely high quality and that is present in the P.D.O. production disciplinary (Protected Designation of Origin) Colli Assisi – Spoleto and in the AIAB disciplinary (Italian Association of Biologic Agriculture).
The company, and the majority of the olive groves, are in CAMPELLO SUL CLITUNNO, on the hill of MARFUGA, from where the company takes the name.
The main cultivar of our groves are MORAIOLO (75%), FRANTOIO (15%) and LECCINO (10%).
The variety MORAIOLO is the predominant cultivar in this area from long time.
A cold continental climate (that protects the plants from the olive fly), the characteristics of the soil and the modern technics of cultivation (without any treatment based on agrochemicals) contribute on producing oil of the highest quality.
