Thucydides wrote in the fifth century "The peoples of the Mediterranean began to emerge from barbarism when they learned to cultivate olive tree and vine".
The general trend in Umbria over the past three decades is to produce high quality extra virgin olive oils. Umbria reaches around 2-3% of the entire Italian production, a small but very esteemed volume. Unlike other oils such as corn or sunflower, extra virgin oil is obtained only from the pressing of olives, it is the only oil that comes from a fresh fruit.
5 reasons to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil every day:
1. Contains polyphenols, antioxidants that slow down cell aging
2. Helps produce good cholesterol (HDL)
3. It is the only 100% digestible oil, it supports digestive activity and kidney function
4. It is a natural anti-inflammatory
5. Used every day, it has anti-cancer properties
Our extra virgin olive oil is produced only with our olives grown respecting environment. The quality of the finished product is garanteed at every stage of the production, thanks to the integrated production system of which we are part and innovations in the sector. The olive harvest takes place between October and November depending on the ripening of the fruit.
The olives are harvested in advance to ensure the highest product quality, also thanks to systems that intercept the olives without ever making them touch the ground.
The milling takes place within 24 hours from harvesting strictly cold and only by mechanical means, to obtain a tasty oil with minimum levels of acidity and a high content of polyphenols.
