TO THE OIL MILL
WE PAY ATTENTION
TO ALL DETAILS
To the mill processing olives it is strictly carried out according to the parameters of the cold pressing (at temperatures not exceeding 27 ° c).
The oil "ALBA" comes from olives picked predominantly green, defined "albae" by the ancient Romans. The olives once collected, are delivered to the mill in special perforated boxes to be pressed within a few hours to mantain the optimal quality of the oil.
Picking predominantly green olives is a choice that garantees higher quality oil, even though as producers we yeild 30% less oil than producers who use mature olives.
