“Iuvat olea magnum vestire Taburnum”
“It’s convenient to cover of olive groves the Great Taburno”
- Virgilio, Georgiche
To the west of the city of Benevento there is the Taburno massif, a varied ecosystem, from where visitors can enjoy an excellent view over the valley Caudina, famous for one of the battles between Samnites and Romans. As claimed by the poet Virgil, the territory of the Taburno was and still is very inclined to accommodate extended olive crops. But the cultivation of oil seems to start with the arrival of the Phoenicians and the Greeks, who will spread the use in the territories colonized as an ingredient in ointments and perfumes. The Romans intensified the production by optimizing the production techniques and expanding the cultivation areas.
Numerous artifacts preserved in the local museums attest to the great importance held by this product in the economy of the time. The sannio, already rich in olive groves, saw an even wider spread of crops, becoming a reference point for the production of oil in Campania.
Role still played in the Italian agricultural landscape. The land of the hills of Benevento, divided into 52 municipalities, is home for the precious oil: the extra virgin olive oil of Sannio hills of Benevento. Yellow with green hues affects the smell with hints of herbs and tomatoes, and the palate with a firm feeling of bitter and piquant, without being extremely unbalanced.
