MATERNIGO – OLIO EXTRA VERGINE DI OLIVA Valpolicella

Description



The olive oil produced in the hills near Verona, particularly in the Valpolicella area, enjoys a degree of renown. The particularly favourable microclimate has allowed the widespread cultivation of olives as well as vines. The olives are hand-harvested in the Maternigo Estate, located in the Commune of Mezzane di Sotto. On the basis of existing regulations, in order to claim the title of extra-virgin olive oil the oil must satisfy the following requirements:
• Extraction from the olives using simple methods of an exclusively mechanical and physical nature.
• Acidity of not more than 1%.
• “absolutely perfect taste”.
Perfection can only be reached if all the operations involved in the production of the oil are correct.
