Tuscia PDO

The third protected regional extra virgin olive oil is Tuscia, registered in 2005. The denomination refers to the oil produced in 52 municipalities in the province of Viterbo.

The local Canino, a small and slow ripening olive variety, allows the production of a low-acidity oil (maximum 0.5%) with a green colour, a fruity odour, and a pronounced flavour. Other varieties include Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino, as well as Maurino and Pendolino.
