Organic extravirgin olive oil
We produce 2 different cultivars, typical of our region, “Biancolilla” and “Nocelara del Belice”, which gives us the opportunity to produce three different types of oil, in strict compliance with the rules that allow us to adhere to the PGI system “Sicilia “
“La Nocellara” Monocultivar is an oil with an intense green color with golden reflections, medium-intense fruity, with hints of artichoke, tomato and almond on the nose. On the palate it reveals bitter and spicy sensations in balance and medium intensity
“La Biancolilla” Monocultivar, fairly fluid, light green in color immediately after pressing and straw yellow after a couple of months of settling. This is light, slightly spicy fruity, and sometimes with hints of tomato, artichoke, almond and fresh grass

The intensity of Nocellara is slightly dampened by the softness of Biancolilla, giving to the oil a greater delicacy, making it a very balanced productIt is the favorite of our customers, who appreciate the intense aroma of green olives, the aftertaste of almond, cut grass and green tomato that make of it an excellent product for daily use on any dish raw than in the kitchen.
