The 300 olive trees cohabit this organic farm with an array of fruits - white & black plums, apricots, figs, pears, oranges, lemons, grapes – tutti frutti. The grove is near Alcamo, on the Trapanese coast of Sicily; to the north is the Tyrrhenian Sea and to the west, the Zingaro Nature Reserve. The grove is organic.
The oil is green with golden highlights. The nose has herbal tones & the taste is, appropriately, fruity, with a slight kick.
Cerasuola, nocellara and biancolilla. These 3 varieties make up the DOP 'Valli Trapanesi' which complement each other so well they've won prizes around the world. One varietal gives flavour, one fruitiness and the 3rd the refining taste.
Originally a young Sicilian computer engineer, Nicola grew tired of working only with computers and away from nature. As a result, he decided to get back to agriculture by managing and growing his family's lands to produce organic olive oil, natural wine and honey.
