ZIA MINiCA OLIVE GROVE Siciliy
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 to Auntie Minica, who lived to the ripe old age of 90. 300 of her trees just outdo her – clocking in at 100 years old while the remaining youngsters are just 15.The grove is overlooked by Mount Renna to the north.
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.
Moresca, cerasuola and nocellara.
Agnese's great grandfather was known as 'Cavaliere del lavoro' (Knight of work), and she is passionately following in his footsteps..
