COLLECTION AND TRANSFORMATION

The olives that we transform into oil are produced directly by us on our plantations, on the slopes of the Miglionichesi hills.
The main cultivars are Maiatica and Cellina di Miglionico, autochthonous varieties that are well suited to the characteristics of the soil and climate.
When the olives reach their ideal maturity, that is, in the period from mid-October to the end of November, they are harvested from the plants with the manual picking method. This system allows optimal harvesting, avoiding trauma and fruit breakage and ensuring full respect for the plant.


The olives collected in this way are conveyed to a deramifogliatore that deprives them of any impurities present, such as leaves and branches, and places them in the tank with granite millstones.
The olive paste is then passed into the kneader, where the separation of the oil from the vegetation water begins. The pasta is then placed on the taxes to be subjected to pressure.
The must obtained by pressing is finally introduced into the separator which definitively separates the vegetation water from the oil.

Finally, the oil is stored in a stainless steel container, strictly without undergoing any type of filtering, both chemical and mechanical. In this way the oil will be able to settle naturally without its organoleptic characteristics being altered in any way.
