Extravergine olive oil — organic olive cultivation

  • The farm has got about 9 hectares of olive groves, on the hill of Frascole (altitude between 300 and 500 metres u.s.l.).
  • The soil has got a clayey composition originated by the decay of the “Marl of Vicchio”.
  • The most spread variety is Frantoio, then there is Leccino, Pendolino and Moraiolo.
  • The olive growing is completly organic since 1999: the altitude of the farm and the lack of other intensive olive cultivations allows us to avoid antiparasitic treatments.
  • The olives picking is completely done by hand when the olives are still not well ripened. Usually it starts at the end of October and it finishes within the end of November.
  • The olives are pressed immediately after the picking in order to keep all the aromatic components and keep an acidity level very low.
  • After the pressing we leave the oil to filtred and then we bottle it.
  • Free acidity percentual: 0,09 - 0,12%.
