The liquid gold is forged directly from young watered olive trees, safeguarding our citrus groves from the battering cold wind in Winter. The olives are local varieties naturally seeded in volcanic soil spread around for miles and mimes by the Etna during its ongoing striking explosions. For the very curious among you, the cultivar names are nocellara etnea and moresca. Early harvest just by hand and a wooden stair, they are promptly milled in controlled temperature baskets. Cold extracted, they are then stocked in large stainless steel containers and settled for 45 days before they reach the glass bottles.
