Il Magnifico 2016

International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Award


Even this year “Il Magnifico”, that is the best oil of the year, will be tried by our panel within the global oil production, that of the whole world, without barriers and prejudices.

No class and no exclusion. A single criterion: that of excellence, from wherever it may come.

The receipt of the samples will end on Feb. 5th , 2016, and already in early March will be announced the names of the finalists silver medals and bronze ones. Producers can then schedule it to be able to come and pick up the certificates at the award ceremony on March 16th 2016, during which will be declared il Magnifico 2016.




















The effort of associations, created to continue the ongoing research that Marco and Massimo led for life, this year sees the integration with the precious world of the restaurant, thanks to AIRO by samples submitted will be made a selection that will go to compose the supply of oil to the participating restaurants, finally giving the opportunity to the final consumer to have a "map" of places where you can also buy oil and heal the eternal gap. 
​Ambitious goal, but Il Magnifico is an independent award, and as such able - with the help of expert and mature panel - to identify the best products in the world in total transparency and impartiality.The action of the prize is aimed primarily at companies that can capitalize on the award won, so we have introduced a grant of access of € 75.00 for the first sample, which we urge you to make a careful selection, so that the sample can represent your work and the best quality you produce. This year we confirm the possibility of sending a second sample (with additional € 25.00) in order to allow you to express yourself to the best of your potential.

Thank you if you want to give us confidence.
