CRU TAGLIAFERRI tells the story of a family, the Di Carlo family, who owns a small grove of about 1.5 hectares. Only 400 olive trees of two varieties, Leccino and Gentile, have been thriving for centuries under the Abruzzo sun. The olive grove is located in Contrada Tagliaferri, in the outskirts of Fossacesia. It is well known in the area as the best of the town, because of its southern exposure, the altitude, and its stony soil. Tonino Di Carlo and his family still harvest each single olive by hand. They are the only people left in town doing so, keeping the absolute perfection of the olives, which they bring to our mill little by little, every day at the peak of the harvest season. That is why we have created this sublime CRU. A limited edition of perfection!
Thanks Tonino Di Carlo !!!
