This grove produces an excellent rich and fruity olive oil that appears golden-yellow in color. The olives ripen quickly as they are rather small, with a symmetrical and ellipsoidal shape. Their coloring is deep violet by the time of harvest. If you prefer mild olive oil, the Leccino olive is characterized by its delicate flavor, and is one of the oldest cultivars in Italy.
The olive oil here is characterized by slight fruitiness. The olive trees thrive and are dense in foliage with medium sized silvery grey leaves. Their unique structure allows these trees to withstand fairly low temperatures in the winter months. Carboncella olives foster a fruity olive oil, and result in an intense green colour with golden reflections.
Here you will find an olive oil with a particularly delicate flavor. The olive trees are thick in foliage and have slender leaves that are medium-sized and dark green. These olive trees experience constant fructification throughout their life cycle.
Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is unrefined and unaltered. We follow the age-old practices perfected during the Roman Empire, which excluded the use of heat and relies on simple pressure. This technique is known as cold-pressing, and results in an olive oil that contains less than 1% of oleic acid. We are warning you: after tasting our olive oil, you will become an olive oil snob.
Our limited edition ceramics are sourced from the neighboring town of Deruta, a medieval town known for its ceramics worldwide. Each bottle is handmade and personalized with the name of the adopter. You receive your Deruta ceramic in the first adoption package. Though you are encouraged to use it to serve your olive oil, we can see how you could turn it into a collector’s item!

The idea to adopt an olive tree arose as we strolled around the olive groves surrounded by frolicking dragonflies. Due to their delicate nature, dragonflies only exist where the air is pure and where the land is free of pesticides. Therefore, Libellula is a symbol for purity and prosperity.
