All our olive groves are based in Kamponovo, a location near the village of Dajla, within the area of Novigrad-Cittanova. Kamponovo is a slightly elevated micro location near the sea. Its persistent wind currents create excellent conditions for olive cultivation. The top quality of our oil is partly a result of the level of salinity in the air, which increases during stronger wind currents coming from the sea.
In our olive groves, we cultivate different indigenous and introduced varieties – Leccino, Istarska bjelica, Buža, Pendolino and Frantoio.
Leccino is an Italian olive variety, originally from Tuscany, but over the years it has become very common also in Istria. “RHEOS Leccino” is a monovarietal extra virgin olive oil, golden green in color, with perfectly rounded fruity scent reminiscing of citrus notes, banana and aromatic herbs like rosemary and thyme. A gentle oil of very mild bitterness and spiciness.
High quality oil obtained directly from olives by mechanical procedures.
|Rheos Leccino extra virgin olive oil comes in two different sizes:
250 ml and 500 ml
|Keep away from light and heat.
It pairs best with fish specialties such as shrimp, fish carpaccio and shellfish. In addition to fish, it is also a great match for young cheeses, cottage cheese and cooked vegetables.
