In 1950, Lamantea family bought the first hectares of land planted with olive trees in the countryside of Bisceglie (San Felice Area). Since then, the family carries on the ancient tradition of milling the olives - the delicious fruit of their secular olive trees. Over the years, their lands were planted with olive trees of different qualities. Today, the farm “Lamantea” produces three different varieties of olive trees: Coratina, Ogliarola and Nocellara, from which they extract extra virgin olive oil of the finest quality. In addition to the olives harvested in its own lands, every year the company increases its production by buying and milling the olives of its neighboring lands.
This extra virgin olive oil takes its name from its original olive grove, cultivated in "rows". The young olive trees from which we obtain this Gran Cru, enjoy both the particularly favorable microclimate of the area situated 30 metres above sea level and the benefits of the soil in which they are planted, tufaceous with the presence of clay and rich in limestone and other minerals.
This new oil is born here, recognizable by its scents of mown lawn, fresh tomato and artichoke. On the palate it has a medium bitter and spicy taste, with hints of green tomato, artichoke and fresh almond.
This extra virgin oil is particularly rich in polyphenols, which give the oil stability, nutritional and health qualities as well as sensory characteristics.
That's where my daddy's oil was born
