Tin blend oil 3 lt
Organic extra virgin olive oil
This Valdibella oil is produced from olives (blend of Cerasuola, Nocellara del Belìce and Biancolilla) grown on the land of our members, in the territories of Camporeale and Monreale. The olive tree grows well in the Mediterranean climate and adapts to different types of soil. In our estates the olive tree is grown in the hills to avoid water stagnation on soils of a varied nature, generally medium-textured with good clayey presence.
Cerasuola: Ancient variety cultivated in our territory, it presents a great longevity of the qualitative characteristics. It has the highest polyphenol content. The sensory profile to the smell is felt artichoke, tomato and grass. The taste is very fruity with a spicy and bitter note. Very persistent.
Nocellara del Belice: Ancient variety perhaps the oldest present in our companies. It produces an oil with very intense olive fruitiness and high persistence. It has a characteristic hint of artichoke and also green almond. It has a bitter and spicy note and has a medium longevity.
Biancolilla: Variety of more recent cultivation. In our high hill areas with excellent production and quality results. The oil is very fruity with a sweet taste since the first months after extraction. The duration of the characteristics is average. It has a sweet taste with hints of almond and tomato, balanced spicy in the first months, then decreases with the passage of time.
We apply cultivation programs to increase biodiversity and minimize soil tillage. We practice shredding pruning residues and legume crops. Generally we do not practice any insecticide or fungicide treatment. Sometimes it is necessary to intervene against the peacock eye and in this case we practice an intervention with copper-based products, while against the olive fly we practice repellent interventions with kaolin or agricultural plaster. On the other hand, pruning and suckering are carried out every year. The collection is manual and takes place at the beginning of veraison; it usually falls between 10 and 15 October and lasts until 15-20 in November. The ideal time is when the percentage of green olives are at least 70% of the total.
