THE GROVE

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 divided it up between his 6 sons and 3 daughters, and this piece fell to lucky Uncle Francesco (nicknamed Ciccino). He planted the olive trees 20 years ago and they have flourished in the famed Sicilian sun. The grove is overlooked by Mount Renna to the north..


 TASTING NOTES

The oil is a lovely golden green. It has a delicate flavour with a whiff of fresh cut grass and a distinctive artichoke taste. Tree varietal: Moresca and Cerasuola.
