Frantoio Portofino LOGOneg

Extra Virgin Olive Oil PDO Riviera di Levante, which will be used for the Pesto Championship on March 29 was bottled today by “Frantoio Portofino”.


“Frantoio Portofino” is the fruit of the ancient passion of a family, the Santagatas, for extra virgin olive oil.
Since 1907, a success consolidated year after year, from generation to generation, thanks to the careful selection of raw materials and the thorough and constant search for the best qualities.
