Difficult lands, extraordinary oils

The cultivation of the olive tree in lower Lazio is not easy. The impervious terraced land does not allow for mechanized harvesting and this is done entirely by hand. The effort and commitment to carry on this "resistance" olive growing, however, are transformed into aromas and scents that only this territory is able to release.

In the our Work There we inspire to the myth Greek from which takes origin the olive tree

At the center of our logo is the goddess Athena, competing with Poseidon for the sovereignty of Attica, a region of ancient Greece. The two challenged each other in a dispute over who would offer the most beautiful gift to the Athenian people. Poseidon hurled his trident to the ground and raised a horse, a powerful and swift animal capable of ensuring victory in battle. Athena on the other hand, hitting a rock with her spear made an olive tree rise from the ground with multiple beneficial functions: to illuminate the night, feed the people and heal wounds.

Zeus, judge of the challenge, crowned Athena sovereign of Attica, as his invention was more peaceful and useful for the population. In addition to the myth, in the logo there is a reference to territoriality, given by the three "S" that surround the goddess and which embody the idea of ​​what olive growing means in our areas. Sun: vital source for every organism; Sasso: the calcareous origin of our lands; Hatchet: so called in antiquity the ax.



Balanced and harmonious, it has an intense green color to the eye. On the nose it releases a medium fruitiness that envelops the senses in a harmonious complex of aromas that recall freshly mown grass and aromatic notes in which thistle and artichoke emerge. On the palate there are balsamic flavors of wild herbs such as wild mint, the thistle is felt again and the typical peculiarity of Itrana is not missing: the green tomato. With a robust structure, the bitter and the spicy stand out, which in a balanced way envelop the taster in a harmony of positive sensations.

Between tradition and innovation

Since 1946 we have been handing down the art of extracting oil from the fruit from father to son, applying the knowledge of tradition with a nod to innovations in the oil field. Commitment, dedication and passion, the guiding principles that have defined our identity and our oil for three generations.

We are immersed in a territory unique: from a part the mountains of the Mountains Lepini, on the other there breeze navy That passes through the dunes of the Park National of the Circeo

Our olive groves extend over approximately 6 hectares of hilly land, 300 meters above sea level. 1200 specimens of Itrana cultivars present in our land. Itrana is the native cultivar of this land and is unique in its kind, rich in polyphenols and possessing unique scents such as green tomato.

In addition to this family land in the Priverno area, we manage olive groves in the Sonnino area and in the Roccagorga area where, in this case, we find olive trees of the Leccino cultivar. We are planning other mixed cultivars, located close to the mill, part of which will be dedicated to educational and experimental purposes.

From the raw material

The care in the process of transforming the olives into oil already begins with the delivery of the olives to the mill, this because to ensure that a good oil is produced from the olives, the starting point is the selection of the raw material, and therefore healthy and intact fruits .

In the 2019 we have renewed The our park cars following a double vision: improvement from the quality the final of the product And enhancement of the by-products tied up to the whole process

Our plant works entirely in two phases, eliminating the addition of mixing water. This allows for a significant improvement in the quality of the final product. Many organoleptic elements of the oil are water-soluble and with the classic three-phase processing they risk binding to the water and being expelled in the separation process. In the two-phase process, however, the oil maintains its organoleptic properties unaltered and can release superior aromatic and fruity contents. The extraction process is done exclusively cold by setting working temperatures on a PLC that never exceed 27-28 degrees in order to keep the quality of the oil unaltered.

Furthermore, the attention to health has led us to look for products that are not common in the oil industry. In fact, in most of the mills, pipes are used to connect the various machines of various colors inside which the paste and the oil travel. These pipes are mostly made of plastic which, in order to be flexible, needs phthalates which are toxic to human health and cause various ailments and diseases. After various searches, we contacted a leading company in the sector which allowed us to include TPHF (Total Phthalates Free) pipes in our production process, i.e. free from any carcinogenic or toxic substance deriving from plastic.
