This is the most famous cultivar diffused in France; especially in Provence, but its hardiness allow it to adapt to different weather conditions and different lands.
The Picholine has been always present in the land of Solimando’s family and it was always the first choice of Costantino. This cultivar has always offered a lot of satisfactions, especially after of the chemicals analyses made by the Assam during the December 2019. They affirmed a very high content of polyphenols, 1458 mg/kg.
The oil obtained from Picholine olives has an intense and fruity taste with notes of grass, artichoke, almonds and light notes of green tomato. The level of bitterness and spices are mediums and balanced. As an extra virgin olive oil of great character, it must be accompanied by dishes of great structure: grilled steaks, vegetables, cooked vegetables, beans and chicory, but we guarantee you a sublime combination even on a simple bruschetta with tomato and oregano or a simple green salad.
