A MINDFUL PROCESS
A mindful process is essential to create an extra virgin olive oil with an unforgettable taste. This is why the Monocultivar Coratina olives are harvested during the first weeks of October and pressed within two hours at our oil mill. This celerity in the process guarantees the smell of fresh olives and preserves the organoplectic characteristic of the fruit, because the olives remain in the bins for a very short time.
Also Japan has recognized the value of our constant dedication. The Olive Japan jury was positively captivate by the strong taste of our Coratina and gave it the silver medal.

It takes a lot of effort to create a remarkable olive oil. A constant commitment that has been recognized to Olio Guglielmi also from AIS BIBENDA.
