Acidity

Acidity measures the acid content Oleic: the higher its value is the poorer the quality of the product. An oil, fruit of the simple pressing of olives, to be able to call extra virgin must have an acidity not exceeding 0.8%.
Our extra virgin olive oil does not exceed the 0,3% – 0,4% and therefore is configured as a very high-quality oil.

Fruity

The scent and taste of an extra virgin must refer to the fruit it comes from: the olives. Our extra virgin olive oil is the squeezing of 2 variety, skillfully blended: Coratina and Ogliarola. The result is a round aroma, intensely fruity and with a high content of polyphenols.

Quality

A quality extra virgin olive oil must possess hints of bitter taste. These derive from the presence of polyphenols, potent antioxidants that counteract the free radicable responsible for cellular ageing and multiple pathologies, including some forms of neoplasms.
Our extra virgin olive oil is rightly bitter, balanced in taste. Overall a harmonious and elegant oil, with hints of almond and sometimes apple.
