Extra - Virgin Olive Oil Monti Iblei DOP subarea Valle dell’Irminio
Our extra-virgin olive oil D.O.P. “Monti Iblei” is born in Vittoria, in the countryside of Ragusa and follows a very meticulous production specification, typical of the D.O.P. production area.
The harvest of olives, strictly hand – picked, and the immediate transformation process of them within a couple of hours,
allow us to extract an olive oil defined by a pleasant harmony and nature.
The breeding of olives, such as the entire farm and winery, is based on the principles of biological agriculture which we are certified since 2017. We are also involved in a certified path of sustainability we will obtain in this year.
We named our extra-virgin olive oil Virgo, as the latin word which symbolise the virginity.
This olive oil combines well with marinated fish, main courses like fish and white meats.
It would be perfect to taste just with a selectioned flours bread as an entreè.
