This quality oil is produced exclusively from organic olives picked by hand on our AIAB and CPPB registered farm. The oil is a blend of several types of olive -leccino, frantoio, pendolino, sargano and Oliva tenera ascolana. These latter three types are authentic species from the Picenum province. When the season allows, the farm Fiorano produces also a type of oil made by only Oliva Tenera Ascolana olives (“monocultivar Tenera Ascolana”). The harvest is finely timed to take place when the fruit changes colour from green to brown/black. This happens between the beginning of October and the end of October, with an average daily harvest of 800-1000 kg. Pressing takes place within 12 hours to ensure the quality of the oil and to keep level of acidity and peroxides extremely low.
