Cru di Cures is made by the expert hands of Laura Fagiolo and her niece Antonella in Fara Sabina, in the region of Lazio. Sabina is one of the most historic areas of Italy, with evidence of human settlement from the Paleolithic period. Olive cultivation in this region is just as historic; Sabina olive oil was the first Italian oil to gain DOP status by the European Community, in recognition of a tradition stretching back thousands of years. Laura named her olive oil Cures after the Latin name for the ancient capital of Sabina, near Passo Corese.
At her farm, Azienda Agricola Fagiolo, Laura cultivates a number of local olive varieties, picked according to each cultivar’s ripening point. The 2015/2016 is a blend make up of 70% Frantoio olives, 10% Carboncella, 10% Raja, and 10% other local varieties. After harvest, the olives are pressed immediately at the family mill to ensure maximum flavor and freshness in the oil. Laura also maintains a small agriturismo where she hosts local school children who come to learn about olive oil production and play with her animals. She is extremely picky about who sells her products, and Gustiamo is proud to offer this oil from a producer like Laura working to safeguard one of the oldest and finest examples of Italian olive oil culture.
