This organic 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 300 olive trees cohabit the organic farm with an array of fruits including white & black plums, apricots, figs, pears, oranges, lemons, and grapes. It's a pretty good spot to be an olive tree.
The Olive oil
The oil is green with golden highlights, a nose the herbal tones, and a taste that is fruity with a slight kick. The varieties are Cerasuola, nocellara and biancolilla, which are the 3 varieties which make up the DOP 'Valli Trapanesi'. They complement each other so well in the combination they've won prizes around the world, one varietal gives flavour, one fruitiness and the third the refining taste.
Originally a young Sicilian computer engineer, Nicola grew tired of working only with computers and away from nature, so decided to get back to it by managing and growing his family's lands producing organic olive oil, natural wine and honey.
