- Other Info:
- The I & P stands for Ione & Paolo and there is a sad, romantic story attached to this*** but there is also a joyful and highly successful story too: for example, the I & P Grand Cru Musignano, a monovarietal made entirely from Caninese olives, has this year won not only the Corona Maestrod'olio 2018 at ExtraLucca 2018 and the Celletti Monovarietal Olive Oil 2018 but also the Il Magnifico 2018 Biodiversity Award as well.
*** Ione and Paolo met in St Petersburgh, Russia, they worked in Milan but their hearts belonged in Lazio in the farmhouse they built overlooking the Etruscan plains. Together they bought some land with some old olive trees on it and they dreamt someday of making their own oil. Then Ione died and Paolo had to decide whether to sell the estate or to stay. He elected to stay and, more than that, he vowed to create the best olive oil in Italy in honour of Ione. This year, just ten years after founding "I & P", he achieved that ambition. His I & P Grand Cru Musignano, a monovarietal made entirely from Caninese olives, won not only the Corona Maestrod'olio 2018 at ExtraLucca 2018 and the Celletti Monovarietal Olive Oil 2018 but also the Il Magnifico 2018 Biodiversity Award as well.

Paolo takes a very specialist approach to his oils, bottling them individually from unique sites on his estate as if they were single vineyard wines from Burgundy - so they have names such as 'Grand Cru' Musignano and 'Grand Cru' Capo Terzo. He has six Grand Crus in all and each is planted with the ancient Etruscan olive variety, the Caninese. They each have distinctly different characters - just as you would expect from different Grand Cru wines - and therefore naturally offer different possibilities for matching with foods from vegetables and fruit to fish and meat.
