Our trees are between 300 and 400 years old and each is hand-pruned and each olive hand-picked. The warm Sicilian sun, the rich volcanic soil, and the steady saline breeze from the Mediterranean come together to make this extra virgin olive oil one of the best in Italy every year. Our producers own almost all of the acreage in this DOP, which gives us a veritable exclusive on the quantity of this product from this region.”
