Riviera Ligure Extra-virgin Olive Oil - Riviera del Levante (PDO)

Riviera Ligure Extra-virgin Olive Oil - Riviera del Levante (PDO)
PDO - Protected Designation of Origin

Deriving from autochthonous olive varieties, this oil is characterized by a high content in oleic acid (over 70%), a low content in linolenic acid (and, as a consequence, of trilinolein), and a low acidity.
The Protected Designation of Origin is reserved to the extra-virgin olive oil obtained from the following varieties of olive trees, growing alone or together in the olive groves: Lavagnina, Razzola, Pignola for at least 65%. Further varieties can be combined with the above-mentioned ones, for no more than 35%.

Curiosities: The olive tree varieties characterizing the landscape of the Province of La Spezia and the respective oils are: Razzola 80% (olive trees similar to Taggiasca, but with less hanging branches, big black and tapered fruits with a late ripening, very rich in oil), Premice, Pignola, Dantesco, Fiandola, Cozzanina, Cozzanone, Toso, Olivella, Moretellina, Lizzone, and others 20%.
