Thanks to a strong passion for oil, today's management, now in its third generation, represents a leading reality in the Sicilian artisanal oil sector. With a strong propensity for innovation and a precise production philosophy they promote the most suitable olive growing areas between the slopes of Etna and the Simeto valley, and favoring the finest native varieties and the national varieties best adapted to the territory, enhancing raw materials with a careful selection of olives and constant care of the work in the mill, in the phases of extraction, storage and bottling.
