This extra virgin olive oil is produced by Azienda Agricola Calabretto, a farm located in the neighboring area of Francavilla Fontana, centrally located between the Ionian and the Adriatic Coast, in the Italian region of Puglia. The variety of olives includes Leccino, Frantoio, Celline di Nardò, Ogliarola and Picholine. 40% of the olive trees are secular while 60% are young plants.
The olives are harvested directly from the tree, through the use of a shaker with networks. The harvesting period goes from October until the first days of November, when the olives are not matured. Within 12 hours of harvesting, olives are cold extracted with a three-phase decanter to ensure quality, consistency and aroma to this oil. Storage is made in absence of oxygen and
light, in a special steel silos where there is a natural decantation. This oil has a green colour with yellow-golden shades and it looks clear and bright, very pleasing to the eye, as well as to the palate.
