Leccino is one of the most common Italian olive varieties. This sort comes from Umbria and Tuscany, however, due to its unpretentiousness, it grows well throughout Italy. And as we can see, not only in Italy, but also in Slovenia, where winters are quite severe. 

Vanja Leccino is a single-grade olive oil made from Leccino olives. 
Leccino welcomes you with a powerful herbal-fruity aroma with hints of ground olive leaves and green tomatoes. 
A little later, you will feel the appearance of subtle but distinct shades of mint, thyme and basil. 

Vanja Leccino is a soft, complex and balanced olive oil that opens slowly and calmly.
In the mouth, the light spiciness and sharpness inherent in early harvest olive oil immediately appear.
Extra virgin olive oil Vanja Leccino has a fresh herbal taste with firm notes of almonds, it is very dynamic, full-bodied and rich. It is still young, it lives and breathes. 

A long fruity aftertaste is accompanied by a pleasant peppery tickle in the back of the throat. If it seems too mild for you, just draw in more air. 

This olive oil goes well with aged cheeses. You can also combine it with balsamic as a dressing for meat salads.
