Tel 0424 524351 (IAT Bassano del Grappa)
It is a usually green oil with slight variations of yellow, with a harmonious scent, initially with fruity notes, with hints of ripe tomato and an almond finish, with a sweet taste with bitter and spicy closure.
The specification for the production of the extra vergine olive oil of Veneto del Grappa Dop determines first of all the area of jurisdiction, which has its nominal core around Mount Grappa, but then it widens toward the west to Thiene and Breganze, and on the other side, to the east along the hills of Asolo, Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, where olives go hand in hand with vineyards. Further specification covers the varietal composition, comprising at least 50 percent of Frantoio and Leccino, the national varieties more suited to cold climates.
