In Italy, Monini is a family, an Olive Oil, and permanent fixture in Italian cuisine. Zefferino Monini is today following the footsteps of his grandfather to achieve the signature Monini flavor first created in 1920.
The consistent, balanced taste of Monini Extra Virgin Olive Oil is versatile and compatible with most kitchen uses, making it the #1 brand of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Italy. Extra Virgin Olive Oil accounts for 85% of the company's production and includes a full range of high quality extra virgin olive oils. The selection we have submitted for the EVA evaluation and seal of approval includes our D.O.P. (Denomination of Protected Origin) and I.G.P. (Indication of Geographic Provenience) oils from Umbria, Toscana, Puglia and Sicilia. It also includes the Monini Fruttato (or Fruity) EVOO, a selection of olives from the Southern regions in Italy, plus the newly added Monocultivar EVOO that is sourced exclusively from individual olive varietals: Frantoio, Coratina and Nocellara.
Monini’s history is simple and has been about extra virgin olive oil for three generations. Our philosophy is clear: every Monini product must be impeccable. Our mission is always the same: sharing our love and passion for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The art of selecting the extra virgin olive oils in the oil mills certified by us and Zefferino Monini’s know-how have always been the distinctive elements of the quality of our products.
