Why we love it
Mare e Monti, sea and mountains in Italian, is an olive oil blend obtained from an olive grove of about 4 hectares in Abruzzo between the Apennines mountains and the Adriatic sea, where for centuries 1000 olive trees of different varieties, Gentile di Chieti, Leccino, Moraiolo and Leccio del Corno, have thrived.
