From our delicate small batch harvesting, cold pressing, to our rare and unique Ottobrattica varietal of olives, we preserve an incredible unparalleled taste sensation only found in small batch estate grown olive groves. Our olives are gently brushed from our trees and then nets catch the falling fruit to minimize bruising. Once off the tree, olives begin to oxidize immediately, increasing unwanted acidity levels of the fruit. That's why our oils are pressed within 24 hours of picking. It gives a complex flavor profile with a fresh ground peppery flavor, smooth front body, fresh grassy under-tones, and a pleasantly sweet finish that offsets the pepper.
This incredible oil is from the Calabria Longevity Region within Italy that boasts some of the highest centenarians’ rates in the world, the people who live the longest, healthiest lives. The native olive grove varietals in this area are centuries old, and only grown in this southern Italy region. They tower 25 meters high and the chemical properties of the soil, the altitude (over 300 meters above sea level) and the particularly favorable climatic conditions, allow for a superior olive oil. Indeed, the name Ottobratico comes from the fact that the harvest starts mid-October, significantly later than the average, further adding to the unique flavor and profile of our oil.
