BARONE PASTORE OLIVE GROVE Sicily
The grove is just outside Alcamo, on the Trapanese coast of Sicily. It used to be owned by the once powerful Baron Pastore, a prominent figure of the Sicilian 19th century political scene. His adjacent estate has fallen into disrepair but his trees, now in their 80s, are flourishing. The grove has views of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the north and the Zingaro Natural Reserve to the west. This is an organic grove.
This oil has a gold-green colour, a medium fruity profile, with the taste of just-cut grass, artichokes and tomatoes. High in polyphenols.
A Silcilian who is passionate abouit olive oil, wine and fruit. Saverio runs this family farm with his sons Roberto and Nicola.
