The olive groves are cultivated in accordance with Organic procedural guidelines contained in EC Regulation 834/07, without any phytochemical or synthetic chemical fertilizer residue.

Harvesting and pressing

Manual olive-picking with the aid of perforated 400-kg crates, from mid October to late November. The olives are cold-pressed by means of a two-phase continuous operation system.

Organoleptic qualities

Light green with golden hues. A rich bouquet with hints of artichoke and tomatoe leaves typical of “Valle di Belice” DOP oil. An intense, enveloping flavour with a typical and captivating spicy finish, which is an indication of its good quality and longevity, due to its high polyphenol content.
