The history of who knows every olive tree’s secret and, with passion, brings to life high-quality handcrafted products.
The farmers who have been working without interruption for ages to provide us one of the most appreciated and most recognized in Italy. Now it is time to give voice to their stories and traditions.
Puglia is the land which symbolizes extra-virgin olive oil and people who have been living here for generations know that this reputation has to be kept high and how much work is behind an olive oil bottle.
They know how to tell this story better than anyone else,
so let’s leave the word to them…
Even if our parents were farmers, they wanted us to take a different path, so they led us to study and to choose another job. Then, during summer months when we had to help in the countryside, we lived that experience and the passion rose, which I have always taken with me.
The farmer is a person who never gives up, who fights against the bed weather and against everything, in order to bring to fruition his own products. So, the sacrifices of an entire generation come out with that olive oil. I think that this is an honor. There, part of that person’s life is summarized.
When I have to produce the olive oil I usually do it at 11 in the morning, when I go to my friend’s oil mill and I start the pressing maximum 4 hours later the picking of the first olive. This is a method that gives the best quality results because it does not start the oxidation process.
To open the door, to smell the olive tree and the oil perfume…not for little time, for 4 months, day and night. It is something of exceptional.
This work brings to three excellent and tasty extra-virgin olive oils, each characterized by its organoleptic qualities.
Albori Monocultivar is obtained by 100% Peranzana olives, a fine cultivar found mainly in a little territory in the North of Puglia. It is characterized by low acidity and a high polyphenol concentration. Fruity medium gentle, and, at the same time, it has a strong character and personality.
Albori Soave is obtained by the blending of three olive qualities, which characterize the Apulian territory, Leccino, Coratino and Peranzana. A fruity and light, gentle and balanced olive oil, able to enhance most of the Mediterranean flavors.
Albori Gran Cru is a fruity medium mature olive oil obtained by an accurate and unique selection of hand-picked olives from only 200 olive trees. Every year the production is limited and only 1500 numbered bottles are sold.
