Laudato is the jewel in the Gabrielloni crown. A top-quality extra virgin olive oil, it is a blend of single-olive varieties of oil, starting with Frantoio and Leccino, after which Coroncina, Orbetana, Piantone di Mogliano, Hard Ascolana and Tender Ascolana are added. The result is a vibrant green oil with flecks of gold.
Each type of olive is hand-picked in the family's groves before it fully ripens (when the olives have reached roughly 30-40% of their full colour) and processed separately on the same day as harvesting. The mix of single-olive oils gives the product a harmonious, mildly-fruited scent with subtle hints of fresh grass, artichoke and green tomato. A sweet olive oil, but with the slightest spicy tang and a lightly bitter aftertaste, it leaves the palate with a pleasant hint of almond.
The bouquet of scents and the final mix of tastes brings out the best in any dish: from egg pasta first courses to entrees of fish and meat.
The Gabrielloni family has produced extra-virgin olive oil since 1955, but olive-growing has always been its core focus. Grandfather Marino was the first to decide to take the hand-picked olives from his groves in the hills of Recanati to be processed at the original family mill. In the 1960s his son Emilio renovated the mill and expanded the facilities, keen to emphasise the family's ties to the land and reinforce the long olive-growing heritage.
Before long, Emilio's daughters Elisabetta and Gabriella were playing an active role, undertaking a renovation of the entire production structure beginning in 1995. Drawing on their inherited knowledge and unfaltering commitment to their work, season after season Elisabetta and Gabriella Gabrielloni produce exceptional extra-virgin olive oil.
Nothing is taken for granted, every step and decision is made with the utmost care and attention, from pruning the trees to pressing the olives, right up to the bottling of the olive oil. There is no other way to ensure that Gabrielloni extra-virgin olive oil continues to meet the standards of excellence confirmed by awards won both in Italy and internationally.
