Olivo secolare Decimi

Umbrian oil is getting noticed for its quality. We propose you two Perugian oil mills of sure interest.

During the most recent event devoted to quality olive oil, "Evolution 2022", you could notice Umbrian oil production. In fact, the Strada dell’Olio EVO PDO Umbria (Road of Oil) has been awarded with Premio per il Turismo dell'Olio  (Oil Tourism Award) as an important Italian example of valorization of the connection between extra virgin oil of olive and its territory. The region, in fact, thanks to the Oil Tourism Movement, the Roads of Oil and Oil Cities is giving great importance to a product that is definitely growing in quality.

We have selected two companies that are located in the province of Perugia and that both have a production of excellent level: Decimi and Agricadd-Oro di Giano.

The Decimi family always proposes an interesting range of products, constantly improving their quality. Founded in 2004, today the farm consists of 21 hectares of specialized olive grove with 5,000 trees, partly situated on the hills between Bettona and Cannara and partly in Giano dell'Umbria, near the abbey of San Felice. Graziano and Romina’s average harvestis about 700 quintals of olives, equal to 75 hectoliters of oil. There are three Extra Virgin Olive Oils, the two Decimi, the PDO Umbria Colli Martani and the Monocultivar Moraiolo, and the excellent Emozione, that we would like to point out. 

The Pompilj family, instead, has been present in the little village of Macciano, in the district of Giano dell'Umbria, since the 16th century. Their descendants carry on this tradition, identifying themselves with the symbol of two-faced Janus, the god who can look to the past and the future at the same time. The estate, where local people offer their precious contribution, consists of 160 hectares, 10 of which destined to the olive grove with 3,553 trees. The general yield is 140 quintals of olives that is 17 hectoliters of oil.
