The main aspect of our production process stays in the field. We ensure that our plants and olive health and wellbeing is maintained thorough dedicated effort in the care of the grounds, in appropriate fertilization, in the pruning process and in the last phase, when the olives are finally gathered. All these measures grants us an excellent harvest with which our EXTRAVIRGIN OIL is made. These superior results are also ensured by our ancient trees and the younger ones of CAROLEA, NOCELLARA and OTTOBRATICA variety.
We do not use pesticides or herbicides in our groves and the fertilization of the fields is carried out in the traditional “sovescio” method by planting lupins and field beans in November (straight after the olives harvest). Then, in February and March, they are moved and plowed in the ground. Whenever it’s needed we could use foliar fertilization, but only using RIGOROUSLY CERTIFIED ORGANIC products.
Il sistemi di raccolta sono molteplici ma il nostro è la BRUCATURA che consiste nella raccolta a mano direttamente dalla pianta. Questo è il metodo che preserva al meglio l'integrità del frutto e ne consente una conservazione molto lunga, inoltre, le olive raccolte si presentano con una esigua parte di foglie. Le olive appena raccolte vengono trasportate in cassetta in PVC fortata e frante nella stessa giornata
There are many harvesting methods, but we prefer the so-called “BRUCATURA” which consists in handpicking the olives directly from the plant. Without doubt, this method best preserves the fruit’s integrity and allows a longer conservation over time. Furthermore the olives are almost free of leaves and this grand an higher quality on the final product. The olives harvested are then brought to the oil mill in perforated PVC crates and pressed on the same day..
The pressing process in our Constant Loop plant, with cold temperature extraction, evolves through the following phases:
Quality control is ensured at all stages of the process, thus obtaining excellent results. This is the only way we create our prestigious oil.
