ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
2000 olive trees grow at Montechiaro Estate, carefully managed by organic farming. We work on each tree with love and passion to extract from our olives the best organic EVO, which is the base for all the regional plates.
We have preserved the most typical olive varieties and we blend them to obtain the best complexity.
These olives are manually harvested between November and December when they are still slightly under-ripe. For preserving perfect flavor integrity and nutritional values olives are pressed in a continuous cold cycle.
Through our historic olive mill museum, we can see a passionate tradition of producing this green jewel
“Extra virgin olive oil is the oil extracted from fresh olives using a mechanical process without the use of excessive heat or any form of additives or solvents”.
