Our olive trees yield fruit every year.
We collect olives when they are still green.
We harvest with self-propelled shakers that facilitate the work thanks to elastic rods,
and accompanying the movement of the branches.
THE CHARM OF NATURE
THE OLIVE GROWER’S HOUSE
We are olive growers and the mill is our home. It is here that, under careful supervision, all the processes for the production of extra virgin olive oil take place. The detachment of the fruit from the plant marks the beginning of the transformation work.
“Each type of olives offers a different emotion, it is our job to enhance its characteristics. I compare our oil mill to a high-class tailoring, where details are fundamental and the attention is maximum. Only in this way is an extra virgin of superior quality born. “ From our olives there are 6 different types of produce, all different in terms of fruit characteristics. The obstinacy in producing a high-level extra virgin olive oil today brings the farm’s products to the best gastronomic corners in Italy and abroad.
WASHING AND DEFOLIATION
After the harvest, the olives are immediately brought to the mill to be deprived of leaves and branches and subsequently washed to eliminate all external impurities.
PASTE AND AROMA
This leads to the delicate phase of the pressing, in which the olives are crushed creating the so-called “pasta”. At this stage, maximum attention is paid to avoid any oxidation of the compound that can take place. Then the pasta passes into the kneaders where the oil molecules aggregate and the aromas are released. In this phase it is important to determine the kneading time and the temperature, strictly cold, to create agreat extra virgin olive oil.
The “pasta” is now ready to pass into the decanter, the true heart of the mill. Here, through a centrifugal force, the oil is separated from the pasta. The oil is now ready to pass into the separator where the last water residues are eliminated.
WONDER TO BE PRESERVED
The oil is filtered to eliminate the last particles of impurities through cardboard filters. It is stored in tanks protected by inert gas in a room with controlled and constant temperature. The oil is now ready to be bottled. “Nature cannot be forced and it is up to us to unite it with patient gestures, to do all that make the product better, unique, inimitable.”
