The Umbrian producer earned a Gold Award for its Sine Die brand, a medium blend of Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, Pendolino and Leccio del Corno olives.
"This competition is an excellent means of publicizing our dynamic and ambitious reality," owner Dianmichele Gnavolini said. "We are certain that it will succeed in giving our products the right prestige."
"We are also certain that it will identify an important open door for an interesting and credible market, as well as one that is very attentive to quality products," he added.
"We concentrated on pressing the olives twice a day, allowing no more than four hours to pass after harvesting, filtering the same day and putting the resulting oil in barrels under inert Argon gas," he added. "In this way, we ensured extreme quality and optimal preservation of the product."
