D'Arola EVO

Our extra virgin olive oil is principally produced from the fruit of centuries-old trees (600-800 years).

Adhering to the same philosophy of flavor as for our wines, our olive oil is never excessive but always full in flavor, fruity and well balanced, typical of the native “Ogliarola Salentina” cultivar. Our oil enhances dishes without overpowering them, leaving a light lingering aftertaste, sometimes spicy but with a light and pleasant intensity.

To maximise flavor and beneficial properties we harvest each area individually, checking for perfect ripeness, the harvest is then carried out in a delicate way, using combs, so as not to impact the trees wellbeing. Once at the mill, the extraction process is meticulous, obtaining pleasant tones of flavor and aromas of a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

The oil is then stored in silos at a regulated temperature, and only packaged according to demand for shipment.
