Olio Extravergine di Oliva 2013

Toscano

The Fattoria Corzano e Paterno has about 2800 olive trees.

Varieties: Moraiolo 40%

Frantoio 35%

Leccino 15%

Pendolino 10%

Our olive groves are cultivated following the principles of organic agriculture: the only fertiliser used is the manure from 700 our sheep. The harvest takes place by hand in November, separately according  to variety. 

All our olives are pressed in the experimental oil press Torre Bianca of  Matteo Mugelli.

The varieties are worked separately, with the machine’s parameters being adapted each time depending on the olive's maturity and type. Crushing is done with metal knives.

The paste is malaxed (mixed) in vertical mixers under vacuum, to reduce the paste's oxidation as much as possible.  

The oil is then extracted by a decanter that enables us to avoid adding water at any point during the process.

The paste enters the decanter at 23° C. The oil is then not passed through the usual separator but is immediately filtered.

Before being bottled the oil is held in stainless steel protected by inert gas (Argon).

In 2011 the yield was 10-13%.

The oil is bottled in 250 cl and 500 cl in three types: blend, single varietal Frantoio and single varietal Moraiolo. The blend is also available in 3 and 5 litre tins.
