First Year of Competition 2010
Flos Olei 2016 is the new project proposed by Marco Oreggia and Laura Marinelli. It is an International Competition addressed to the world best olive growing farms and at the same time it is a Guide to the world best extra virgin olive oils describing, popularizing and promoting the ones that will excel in this selection.

The Competition includes an assessment of the olive oils presented by our panel of Expert Tasters through rigid tasting and the working out of an organoleptic profile that will be communicated to the producers. However we would like to point out that only the suitable olive oils will be published in the Guide.

The Guide is written both in Italian and in English and consists in a national and regional presentation (for Spain and Italy) of the olive growing sector all over the world supplying historical and cultural information, production data, varieties and areas protected by names of origin. Every farm is also described in a card with notes about tasting and gastronomic matches. Moreover the Guide is also realized in the multimedia versions (iPhone-iPad).
