The gifts of the land …
The farm, which the “Relais La Tenuta del Gallo” is part of, extends for over more than 20 hectares of land, for the most part cultivated for cereal crops.
From the vast olive groves with the typical cultivations of the Amerini Hills, an excellent extra virgin olive oil is produced, which, in 2008 won “il Ramoscello d’Oro” award, qualifying as the best oil in the competition reserved to oil producers of Amerino. Another mono-variety oil is also produced.
The vegetable garden and various fruit trees offer exquisite seasonal produce, used in the restaurant for the preparation of the dishes as well as for the making of jams, marmalades, pickled spicy fruit, candied fruits, dried fruit, conserves and sauces. In the farm we produce rasberries and blackberries, and there are also rare trees of ancient fruits, including black fallacciani figs and different varieties of apples typical of the area, like the “Ulpia” of the ancient Romans, the “abbondanza”, the “limoncella”, the “amerina”, the pink apple of Amelia. These ancient fruits bestow forgotten, valuable flavours and delights, from which the exquisite jams are obtained.
From the pigs breeding who grow up free in the woods of the farm, we produce fine meats and salami for our restaurant.
It is possible to purchase the products of the farm, also in valuable gift packs.
