Origin

The olive groves of the “Fattoria Il Lago“ are situated on the property itself in Dicomano at an altitude which varies from 350 to 450 metres above sea level. The area destined for the growth of 1500 olive groves is about 9 hectares.

Sensory characteristic of the oil
  • Colour: Intense olive green

  • Flavour: Fruity – Piquant – Slightly bitter, peppery
Harvesting, transformation and preservation

The olives are completely harvested by hand, stored on mats in a well aired room and then transferred to the oil mill within 3 days after harvesting. Transformation occurs through the use of a soft crusher with rotating blades, which consents the production of a high quality paste. The oil produced is then placed in stainless steel containers and stored in a room where the temperature is controlled.

Consideration of the product

The oil produced in the “Fattoria Il Lago“ during the years has constantly given excellent results in chemical analysis especially regarding the extremely low value of acidity (less than 0.30%) and the number of peroxide (less than 10%) and all these components guarantee the quality and the sensory values expressed by an official panel commissioner (COI Method).
