Cru di Cures is made by the expert hands of Antonella Fagiolo in Fara Sabina, not far from Rome, in 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. No wonder Sabina olive oil was the first Italian extra virgin olives oils to gain DOP status by the European Community, a recognition of a tradition stretching back thousands of years. Laura named her extra virgin olive oil "Cures" after the Latin name for the ancient capital of Sabina, near Passo Corese.
Inside their 50 acres, they farm ancient cultivars such as Raja and Carboncella and more recent olives groves with varieties like Frantoio and Leccino. After the harvest, the blend of these olives is pressed immediately at the family mill to ensure maximum flavor and freshness, which results in one of the most representative EVOOs from this region.
