THE NATURAL OLIVE COLLECTION
The full moon always brings with it mystery and curiosity and every time we take the chance to this event we find ourselves with the nose up to admire that luminous, white and impalpable sphere that gives us a sense of greatness, infinity and magic.
We, too, of Frantoio Evo, we were left behind by the mystery of the full moon and wanted to create an oil that gives those who enjoy the same sensation of wonder of a moonlit night.
Always the moon with all its phases accompanies farmers and peasants, telling them the time of sowing or harvesting and we wanted to exploit this bond between heaven and earth and harvest the olives at a precise night: the full moon night Mid-October.
The collection period began in the second decade of October and on October 15, 2016, it seemed to us the perfect time to start this new experience from Moonlight.
The olive groves that make it come from the secular olive trees that we of the Frantoio cultivate on Monte Ventolone, 350 meters high: the highest and exposed to the south of Arquà Petrarca.
We harvested the olives at night, sheltered from sunlight and temperature fluctuations at only moonlight.
We worked right away to give birth to an extraordinary Extra Virgin Olive Oil: a maximum expression of perfume, taste and aroma.
This oil brings with it only two things: the full moon night and the olive.
The night-time collection helps to minimize acidity, thus obtaining an EVO-rich oil of polyphenols, where all the organoleptic characteristics are naturally exalted.
