Olio Extravergine di Oliva

The vine and the olive tree, two plants that have been cultivated together for centuries and are the symbol of our Mediterranean nature, also live in harmony here at Fittà. The gnarled olive trees extend between the vineyards, marking the boundaries and dotting the hills here and there. When the wind blows and their canopy stirs, they flash with silver. The noble and  precious extra virgin olive oil that we extract from the fruit of our olive trees, is sweet liquid gold with an aroma of almonds and citrus fruits.
