NONNO TATO OLIVE GROVE Sicily
Located in the beautiful Val di Noto in south eastern Sicily, the land around the grove originally belonged to Agnese’s grandfather, Nonno Paulo. He divvied it up between his 6 sons and 3 daughters, and this piece fell Agnese’s father Guglielmo who planted the olive grove 35 years ago. The trees are now in the care of Agnese herself. Much of the olive oil they produce is bagsied for their family’s sott’olios, but Agnese has set aside 200 tree for adoptions. This is an organic grove.
This oil has a delicate aroma of tomatoes, apple and banana. There are many fresh green tones and a dried fruit finish. Tree varietals: Carolea and nocellara.
Agnese's great grandfather was known as 'Cavaliere del lavoro' (Knight of work), and she is passionately following in his footsteps..
