Organic extra virgin olive oil from monocultivar olives
Four 0,50 lt bottles of organic extra virgin olive oil from monocultivar olives: Moraiolo, Leccino, Dolce Agogia, Frantoio.
The cultivation and all subsequent processing stages take place in compliance with organic farming methods that exclude any synthetic chemical, for both the fertilisation of the soil and for pest-control.
