Winery: We grow Tonda Iblea olives using the same agricultural techniques that we use to make our wines. For us, there is only one path that we can take. Olive oil, just like wine, is a question of culture and history and goes back to the ancient traditions of our ancestors. Our trees are ancient as well. Some are hundreds of years old. We have 18 hectares in the contrada of Piraino in the area around Chiaramonte Gulfi. We manually harvest all the olives, respecting the tress and their fruit. We use the same techniques of those who came before us and we want to continue to pass them down through the generations. The olives are harvested and immediately are sent to the mill for cold pressing the same day. The result is oil made with Tonda Iblea that holds its color, aromas of peppers and tomatoes, which is persistent but not invasive and has great acidity. It is also slightly spicy. We follow tradition and bring in into the future. This is COS olive oil."
