Extra virgin olive oil
Colletorto, Montelongo and the entire village
of Montorio in Frentani are areas that are
extremely well known for their olive groves.
Over the centuries, olive cultivation in
the Molise region has become increasingly
specialized, adapting to the various territories
and characterized by different varieties:
Rosciola di Rotello, Gentile nostrana, Sperone
di gallo, and Ogliarola. Mentioned by Cicero,
Horace, Varro, and Pliny, the olive oil
of these areas enjoyed great prestige and
was used throughout a very widespread area
in the past. The discovery of pots and vases
at the excavations of Roman villas in the
Larino district and at other sites testifies
to the production and sale of local olive
oil even in ancient times.
