Intense aroma and flavor characterize our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, obtained from our excellent olives grown in the Umbrian territory
THE OLIVE GROVE
The area for the olives production is about 2 ha, divided into four plots with different exposures and types of soil. The average age of the plants is about 25 years, the breeding is a polyconic vase with planting scheme varying from m. 4x4 to m. 8x8. The varieties are the most typical of the Baschi area: Moraiolo, Leccino, Frantoio and Pendolino, the latter is the pollinator. No fungicide and insecticide treatments are carried out, and fertilization takes place with the use of slow-release organic fertilizers. Olive grove’s field is rarely ploughed, since we prefer to keep a green turf. The harvest is done by hand starting from the end of October until the end of November with the use of electric and pneumatic shakers.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
"Tre Cipressi" (Three Cypresses)
As per ancient Umbrian tradition, we produce our extra virgin olive oil by combining the zonal varieties in a single harvest, so we can achieve a perfect balance of aromas, fragrances, color and taste. The pressing is done every day at the end of the daily collection, using the best and modern equipment at a maximum temperature of 23 ° C, all to ensure a perfect product from an organoleptic and quality point of view. The result is an oil with great character, explosion of chlorophyll, remarkable palate pleasantness and hints of tomato and wild thistle.
