Extra Virgin Olive Oil
A GASTRONOMIC JEWEL FOR YOUR DELIGHT

The tradition guarantees quality

Our olive tree plantations are settled at the foot of Montes de Toledo, a mountain range located south of Toledo and north of Ciudad Real. Zone in wich the "cornicabra" olives -a variety original from this region and highly appreciated since ancient times for the supreme quality of its oil- have been traditionally grown. Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs lived in this country and selected the olive trees that best adapted to the environmental conditions of the region. Since then, the small family type of plantations have been passed from generation to generation as a symbol of love for their land.

 

Health and good taste together

The olive oil carrying the denomination of origin "Denominación de Origen Montes de Toledo" is necessarily the extra virgin quality with maximun acidity of 0,7º. It gives a great sensation of density in the mouth, it is fruity, with a delicate taste of almonds and a very well balanced aroma that satisfies the most demanding palates. Its colour varies from golden yellow to intense green. This quality oil is obtained by physical means only, just pressing the olives and without altering its characteristics, preserving the aroma and taste of the fruit it comes from and, in this way, we obtain an exquisite food of great help in preventing cardiovascular decease, atherosclerosis and control of cholesterol level.

 

A certified product: guarantee of quality

The olive growers, mill owners and bottlers must comply with all the requisites of a very strict set of regulations written in the "Pliego de Condiciones" that controls the production process all along, from the tree to the consumer, demanding immediate milling, proper storage and bottling. The certification of the product is done by the "Fundación Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen de Aceite Montes de Toledo" a regulation body that follows the directions of Norm EN-45011. There is an inspection program in place for all the certified companies to inspect all the stages of production, there is as well sampling in the market, the Certification Committee guarantees impartiality because in this body are represented producers, bottlers, distributors, merchants, public administrations, university and consumers.

 

A back label issued by the Organismo de Control (Control Body) guarantees that all the olive oils that carry it comply with the quality requisites written in the set of norms. This label is the "MARCA DE CONFORMIDAD" (passing mark) from the denomination of origin Montes de Toledo.

ONLY THE BEST OILS OF THE ZONE CAN SHOW THE PASSING MARK FROM THE DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN MONTES DE TOLEDO
