The history and secrets behind Mamma Agata's Extra Virgin Olive
Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is proudly made with only the best Italian local
olives and following ancient methods that guarantee a wonderful quality and flavour.
Only the best to pass the tests for Mamma Agata!!
It all begins with the "Rotondella" Olive, a variety of olive tree found
in southern Italy, mainly in the area of Salerno. The name "Rotondella"
derives from the rounded shape of the form of olives. This wonderful variety of
olive tree has been introduced in the Alburni territory and in many different areas
of Cilento several centuries B.C. but, the "Focesi" Greek colony was originally
from Asia Minor. An ancient plant of medium vigour, with thick foliage, and fruit-bearing
fragile branches are delicately cultivated during the Harvest.
Between the many characteristics of this olive tree, the most important is its high
resistance with low temperatures and dry periods. The perfect habitat for this tree
is in the southern hill areas with an altitude of 400-600 meters above the sea level,
with a rock soil and south exposure. With these optimal conditions, the Rotondella
Olive doesn't need any particular treatment, with the exception of pruning and fertilizing.
The "Rotondella" olive is very much appreciated for productivity and quality
of the oil and is included in the standard rules of the production of the DOP Oils
in the "Salerno Hills" and the "Sorrentina Peninsula".
The collecting is done exclusively by hand and the Extra Virgin Olive oil is obtained
through the cold mechanic pressing made on the same day of the harvesting. It is
decanted for about 30 days in stainless recipients without any other filtrations.
This Extra Virgin Olive oil has a green straw-yellow colour with a good vivacity
and intensity, often clear.
At the olfactory exam the oil resulted with a delicate fruit aroma, with notes of
apple and green leaves. The taste is soft and delicate, fresh olive, principally
sweet with bitter and spicy imperceptible notes. The consistency of the oil is fluid,
with evident flavours of pinenuts and slight aftertaste of hazelnuts and almonds.
The acidity of the Extra Virgin Olive oil is always lower of the 0,70% .
This Extra Virgin Olive oil is the key product of the famous Mediterranean Diet.
The fresh aromas in this olive oil make it the ideal "conditioner" for
all servings of high consistency, and typical of the original area; grilled fish,
wild salads, organic vegetables, and legumes.
The whole experience... was an incredible challenge and another
wonderful Gennaro's creation... besides his red wine "Santi Medici"!!!!!
The whole experience was a new challenge for the whole family... but we are so proud
of our new "baby"... a wonderful satisfaction! Producing the oil... from
best olives of our land... bottling it... designing the label... being ready to
it in the best way from sunlight and climate... it was priceless!
Once you see all the efforts in creating such a wonderful product from the hard
in the land and respecting the environment, your taste buds will understand why
it is superior.
We the family, and especially Gennaro, who is a olive oil tester and
the creator of our extra virgin olive oil are now ready and honoured to share with
our extended family, the "birth" of Mamma Agata's Extra Virgin Olive
