Our extra virgin olive oil is obtained following the most stringent eco-friendly practices,
ensuring the environment protection and a natural salubrity of our green gold.
In all our estates, the old olive trees implants are composed by different and ancient local varieties. We don't treat them in any way, they are not irrigated and not chemically fertilized. The olives, coming from those trees, are picked by qualified staff, and milled in modern oil mills in few hours from the harvest. Our EVO oil is cold extracted and not filtered, keeping so unaltered its nutritional and organoleptic characteristics. After natural decantation the oil is bottled, then stored in dark places and sheltered from heat sources.
our unique and elegant 500 ml gives an unfailing touch of style to your table.
