EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
* * * NEW VINTAGE 2021 * * *
Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Leccino and Frantoio: our hand-picked olives are pressed the same day at our mill to preserve the aromas and nutritional value. The low yield of each plant enhances the quality: between 5 and 7 kilos of olives are harvested from 1 olive tree, which makes approximately 1 litre of oil.
The oil is stored in steel containers in an air-conditioned room, away from light and air. The oil of Castello di Ama is a vivid shade of green, which becomes yellowed with the passing of time. The striking aromas are fruity and fresh, with nuances reminiscent of chlorophyll, while it is fragrant, well balanced and rounded on the palate. The oil has a slight spiciness and bitter taste shortly after pressing.
