TIBURTINI is an excellent extra virgin olive oil from the Villa Adriana, in an exceptional olive growing region in the hills of Tivoli, just outside of Rome. It is here that the Lolli family has been tending olive groves, including some trees over 800 years old, for the past three centuries. The olives are handpicked from the ancient trees just as their color is changing from bright green to purple, and pressed within 24 hours, resulting in a bold, complex oil.

The 2017 harvest is exceptional, beginning with a gentle grassiness and opening up to flavors of artichoke, almond and aromatic olive. The finish has a slow, smooth peppery bite. A spectacular finish to anything fresh, the oil pairs well with just about anything, including salads, fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, pasta, roasted vegetables and fresh fish or seafood.

  • Drizzle over salads of fresh greens
  • Delicious over rustic Italian breads sprinkled with sea salt
  • Use to dress roasted vegetables
  • A stunning oil for finishing pasta
  • Drizzle over fresh fish or seafood
100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The oil named TIBVRTINI springs from trees growing on the ancient land of Villa Adriana - the Villa of the Roman Emperor Hadrian located in Tivoli built between 115 and 135 A.D. The Villa is located in the small but exceptional olive growing region near Rome, in the region of Lazio. The trees are most likely descendents of the olive groves that grew there during the period of ancient Rome. The noble families of Lolli di Lusignano and Bulgarini own the groves which grow on top of the ruins of the buildings and gardens of this ancient site.

The olives that comprise TIBVRTINI Olive Oil are handpicked with a small orange rake, or Mannucia. Voted among the 7 best Olive Oils in the World by TASTE Magazine, Tibvrtini is a truly artisinal olive oil, organic and unfiltered.
