Line description: Tintoretto is an oil monocultivar obtained from the selection of native olives of Castiglionese variety. Characteristic of Castiglionese is that it comes from ancient plants present only in the Valley of the River Fino, in the province of Teramo. In Italy there are more than 500 olive varieties, this unique biodiversity in the world gives monovarietal oils a strong sensorial and territorial identity. The "Castiglionese" olive tree has a limited distribution and is present above all in the municipality of Castiglione Messer Raimondo from which the cultivar takes its name. Plant of particular beauty and good vigor but low return in oil.
