Oil and Vintage
"...to preserve their freshness and integrity, the olives are harvested early and pressed on the same day. The 2020 vintage was particularly demanding for the cultivation of the olive tree as the cold and rainy spring delayed the flowering which was then heavily penalized by the sweltering June. September and October sunny and cool nights allowed the olives to ripen correctly, later than average, but with an excellent supply of polyphenols, aromas and fatty acids"
Pairings and Preservation
An irreplaceable food in the Mediterranean diet for its healthy qualities due to the richness of antioxidant polyphenols, vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids. Given its natural concentration, it is recommended to use it in small raw doses to flavour the most varied dishes.

The dark background is made up of a large central oil green rectangle in which the law is inserted. In the upper part, there is the historical company logo: a parchment on which the company name is engraved with the motto "in humo virtus". In the lower part, there are three symbols of the nine companies to symbolize the cultivation of the olive tree: the shell to represent our land of marine origin, water, necessary in small quantities, but indispensable to the life of the plant and the wind, bearer of life in the period of pollination of olive flowers.
