Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic

In our place, Grotte, nature has been generous giving us an ideal microclimate for the cultivation of the olive tree. The harvesting of the olives, called BRUCATURA, takes place manually: the olives are in fact burned (detached) manually and carefully directly from the plants starting first from the tops, and laid in boxes to ensure their integrity and finally stored in cold storage.

The harvesting period is noticeably contained during the months of October and November because at this time of the year the maximum quantity of “collectible” oil is not present on the plant, but the highest quality level is guaranteed. The extraction method takes place by continuous cold cycle.

The oil, obtained, has unique characteristics of great value: intense color, spicy flavor with fruity nuances and very low acidity, capable of remaining unaltered over time. Our oil is stored in stainless steel tanks protected from light and heat until sold, to ensure ideal conditions of protection against oxidative processes, responsible for rancidity.
