2021 Italian Oil Guide Award for the oil Selection N.6 by Agricola Locci
The Selection No. 6 of the Locci di Giano dell'Umbria farm , in Perugia, was awarded the highest award by Gambero Rosso in eleventh edition of the Guide to Italian Oils 2021 which assigned the "Three Leaves", that is the maximum score, to Selection No. 6.
Selection No. 6 is a blend of six typically Umbrian cultivars: Pendolino, Moraiolo, San Felice, Frantoio, Leccino and Tendellone. The varieties of olive trees chosen for the oil are carefully selected and then subjected to separate collection and separate milling.
The 6 monovarietal oils are mixed to create an oil that is pleasant for all palates, both for those who love a more delicate flavor and for those who prefer a more intense flavor. Selection No. 6 is therefore suitable for the whole family, young and old, giving a unique flavor to each dish.
It can be used both for cooking and for seasoning dishes, resulting in a decidedly versatile and adaptable product to every need. In this regard, the company has created a specific package, a 750 ml metal bottle, ergonomic and easy to handle. It can therefore be used easily in the kitchen for the preparation of recipes, or left at the table for raw condiments thanks to its elegant and refined design that gives a chic touch to each preparation.

Vinitaly April 2018
Vinitaly is the largest international fair in the world where exhibitors can meet real connoisseurs.
It has been satisfying seeing that most of the oil experts who came to Vinitaly to learn about new products, have appreciated our extra virgin olive oil which means that the Made in Italy is still a guarantee, but also that the quality of the Agricola Locci is recognized and very appreciated and we are proud of it. This experience allowed us to grow and we came back home well satisfied with the excellent feedback obtained by those who really know something about oil.
"A new experience full of surprises: we had fun, we learned and we understood how important teamwork is. I believe in the team work because everyone plays an essential role and only together we can faster achieve the result. At least that's what I believe. Vinitaly gave me a great energy and it made me even more proud as I was of what I'm doing and what I plan to do. I feel like I'm on the right track even if there is still a lot to do, but with the right team, quality and the passion, there should not be any obstacles. Vinitaly was an event that left something in each of us and I’ll keep a good memory: in short, we did well! "
"I didn’t know what to expect from this experience: it was the first time for me, both as a visitor and as an exhibitor. I only knew that I would meet real connoisseurs and that a good English wouldn’t be enough without a good basis of the product knowledge. Fortunately, the quality of Agricola Locci extra-virgin olive oil have been appreciated by oil experts just because its smell, so I started to feel less fear about. It took only a bit of sympathy typical of us Italians, the quality of a product which didn’t need such great introductions, and the English that certainly allowed us to build a relationship with Chinese and Japanese connoisseurs. Honestly, the Vinitaly made me grow: after only 4 days I got the awareness that sometimes we need more confidence in ourselves for achieve results, something that I learned from Lorenzo Locci who has confidence in himself and in his skills, keep following his dreams.
