It is an oil without any mechanical handling or filtration: a real olive juice featuring a distinctive lightness, mildness, flavor and genuinity. In fact, it is obtained by simply squeezing the fresh olives directly picked from the tree. By using old traditional techniques, this nectar is obtained directly from the freshly ground olives paste in stainless steel vessels, from which it is collected after its natural settling.
Low in yield and of limited production, this olive oil selection is highly appreciated also for its high nutritional content, and for its taste, due to its lower acid grade.
