Characteristics

This oil is born in the company's olive groves located in the municipalities of San Mauro Marchesato and Scandale, in the hills of the Crotonese Marquisate.

It is a blend of two Calabrian cultivars, of which more than 90% is made up of the Carolea cultivar while the remainder is made up of the Borgese cultivar

The Casolare Oil obtained from about 2 thousand olive trees, grown on our estates, has wonderful nutritional and health properties, more enhanced by the biological management of the cultivation.

Doing organic farming is a demanding activity as the means to feed plants and to defend against parasites are more expensive and also because organic production is lower than that with conventional agriculture.

However, organic has allowed us to obtain products of the highest quality, respecting nature. It is not a simple cultivation technique, but the process we carry out is synonymous with respect and love for our plants and our land. Organic means learning and interpreting the daily signals that plants send us. Observe, study and above all foresee with the help of Science and with respect for Nature. For us, cultivation operations are interventions for the care of our trees, and for this reason they never stop during the course of the year
