"Slow Food Oil: 'Colle Natio dei Centenari' Presidium 2024

'Colle Natio dei Centenari', the jewel in the crown of Oleificio Sapigni, confirms its Slow Food Presidium status again this year, a recognition of quality and tradition.

Sustainability and land value

It is with pride that we announce that our beloved 'Colle Natio dei Centenari' oil has once again been recognised as a Slow Food Presidium for this year. This status is not only a symbol of superior quality, but also that of an unwavering commitment to sustainability, the preservation of Italian gastronomic traditions and the valorisation of the land.

The wonder of 'Colle Natio dei Centenari' oil

Coming from over 100-year-old olive trees, 'Colle Natio dei Centenari' is an organic extra virgin olive oil of rare quality. The olives, selected from the Correggiolo, Rossina and Moraiolo varieties, are harvested in our historic olive groves located in the hills of Rimini, in an ideal microclimate in the Emilia Romagna region, giving the oil a distinctive aromatic profile with notes of artichoke, bitter almond and freshly cut grass. The processing follows processes that preserve all the organoleptic properties of the oil, making it not only an excellent condiment but also a true panacea for health.

What is the Slow Food Presidium

The Slow Food Presidium is an award given to products that are exemplary in promoting local food biodiversity. Products with this seal are guaranteed to be of superior quality, sustainably produced and able to offer the consumer a unique taste experience. The Slow Food Presidium is a label that identifies products unique in the world for their organoleptic quality linked to artisanal and sustainable production techniques. These products are custodians of history, tradition and landscapes.

Slow Food: a global movement
