The most widespread olives since the Middle Ages
Leccino Olives are among the most widely cultivated in Italy, thanks to their delicate flavour. They are believed to originate from central Italy, and evidence there goes back to the Middle Ages. Today they are
diffused throughout the Peninsula. The sweet, mellow taste of the olive is blended with a bouquet of flavours and aromas, including the intensity of chilli.
