The Piantone variety of Mogliano is a cultivar of Marche origin spread mainly in the province of Macerata (with greater concentration in the municipality of Mogliano) and that reaches the internal areas of the province. The name ‘Piantone’ could suggest a large tree, when the plant is characterized by a low vitality and a high resistance, which makes it perfect for super-intensive cultivation.
The fruit is medium to large, and for this reason it is ideal not only for the extraction of oil but also for its use in the kitchen. The oil yield is high with early relocation. The oil it produces is delicate, harmonious and balanced, with a yellow color and slight green hues. It has a light fruity taste, combined with herbaceous notes and hints of tomato and dried fruit.
It is an oil that lends itself well to being used raw and as an exaltor of delicate dishes.
Regarding its technical characteristics, we can illustrate:
- the leaf, with an elliptical shape and a medium size
- the fruit, of medium-large size, with an ovoid shape and a humbed apex. The color is light green with red-violet shades
- the core, consistent and with a high octopus / hazel ratio
