We want to summarize the secrets of our work:
Harmonic interaction between natural factors: geographical localization, excellent soil's quality, optimal weather and Tuscan natives cultivars.
Our faith into the natural way of making things, our commitment for traditions and authenticity. We believe that man can do a lot but is Nature who lay down times and modality.
The small scale of our operations allows us to do things in a traditional way paying close attention to all the stages of the process, from cultivation to production.
Our attention on choosing the optimal harvest time. We sacrifice the quantity on the altar of quality for the benefit of the
chemical and organoleptic characteristics of our EVOOs
Our iron will to work the olives within a few hours from harvesting and with cold extraction, or with strict temperature controls to ensure the maintenance of the
