The first unripe olives are carefully selected and harvested by hand and, within a few hours, they reach the olive press, where the olive oil is obtained through the cold pressing procedure, at a temperature that never exceeds 23° C. Its main characteristics are the low acidity 0.29%, the rich taste, the antioxidant effect due to the high level of polyphenols, the vivid green colour, the spicy and slightly bitter aftertaste and the rich aroma of freshly cut fruit.
