Olive Oil Tasting

Olive Oil Tasting in Umbria Tuscany 

Come and visit us at il Fontanaro to enjoy your first olive oil experience.

Here is a brief introduction on our Olive Oil Tasting.

  • The color of the extra virgin olive oil is not an indication of its purity or lack of it.
  • When you  do an Olive Oil Tasting usually the best oil is gold color!
  • The true extra virgin olive oil is the result of the first press of olives, shortly after they have been picked. Ideally within few  hours from the time they are picked.

  • Two factors affect the quality of the olive oil: light and heat. The olive oil is best preserved in dark containers, away from a light or heat source.
  • If the olive oil is preserved under normal conditions, its qualities remain unaltered for at least one year from the time it is pressed.

Olive Oil experience – What are the steps for the olive oil tasting and of the preparation of the true “fettunta”?

  • First sample a single good drop of the olive oil. You should experience a slight tingling in your throat.
  • Next rub a clove of garlic on a toasted slice of bread, then pour evenly the olive oil over the slice of bread.
  • As a last step, rub half a ripe tomato over the bread.

The toasted bread, with the garlic, extra virgin olive oil and tomato rubbing, is now the “fettunta”, ready for the enjoyment of the palate.
