We have some 4 hectares of olive trees located at an altitude of 500m a.s.l. The majority of the plants are more than a hundred years old. All trees are indigenous and grow on clayey terrain with limestone deposits, with a density of ca.
300 plants per hectare.
Traditional harvesting with shaker.
Extraction using a modern continuous system, while maintaining a cold temperature.
Golden yellow with green reflections, this oil has an intense fruity flavour with distinct notes of tomato, fresh herbs and artichoke. The result is a strong, full but balanced structure, combining a harmonic bitter and spicy aftertaste.
A perfect addition to soups and pastas (crude, after cooking), marinated seafood, carpaccio, grilled fish, grilled and roasted meats, as well as legumes and vegetable courses. Also particularly suited to accompany fresh cheeses such as mozzarella.
STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE
In a cool & dry, dark place, not below 7°C as olive oil starts to solidify at that point. Ravece has a good shelf life due to the high level of polyphenols and low acidity, however it is best to consume within 1-2 years after the harvest to benefit from the products organoleptic qualities.
