Sabina Olive oil
It’s hard to talk about Sabina without mentioning its olive oil. The olive oil from Sabina is perhaps one of the most well-renowned olive oils in Italy, although not much of it is known about outside of the country.
The olive oil
Sabina olive oil is characterised by its low acidity and smooth yet peppery finish, which is a result of both the landscape in Sabina and the main varietal of olive in the area (Carboncella.) It is the steep hills and rocky limestone which gives the Sabina olive oil its distinctive taste.
Did you know?
Sabina olive oil was the first olive oil in Italy to receive the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) appellation. This gives it the same status as Champagne, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Melton Mowbray pork pies.
