gocce di Principio
olio extravergine di oliva DOP Cilento
"gocce di Principio" exclusively comes from the harvest of our olive trees. The cultivar we own are: Leccino, Pendolino, Salella, Frantoio and Ogliastro.The olives are gathered with automatic olive harverster between the end of September and mid-October. The techniques imply dropping the olives on wide nets, which are eventually brought to the oil mill within 24 hours. After several steps, including centrifugation and refinement, the oil is injected and kept in steel silos for about 3 months: here it will maturate and reach its full potential.
