History, tradition, genuineness, respect for the territory and the environment are the principles guiding the whole extra virgin olive oil production process, from the harmonious management of the olive orchards to the selective harvesting of the fruit at its perfect stage of ripening, from the crushing of the olives to the mixing and rigorously cold extraction, right up to the bottling and careful storage of the oil.
