Italian olive oils are among the best quality olive oils in the world. They are produced throughout Italy. Olive oils from each Italian region have its specific taste, scent and colour.

Umbria is the region situated east of Tuscany and west of Le March region. This region produces some of the best olive oils in Italy. The region of Umbria has hilly terrain and great climate for growing olives.
Umbria's olive oils are made from the olives of the Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, Agogia and Raggiola varieties. The oils tend to have an artichoke and green tomato aroma, and sometimes have the peppery taste of Tuscan oils. Many of the Umbrian oils have a fruity flavour.
