Itrana Alta Quota

Heroic, sustainable, nutraceutical olive-growing

Heroic

We recover, by conversion to organic farming, centuries-old olive groves of Cultivar Itrana, at risk of neglect, over terraced fields, high up in the hills, on the most rugged landscapes of the Dop Colline Pontine, in the municipalities of Itri and Sonnino. The roughness of the terrain forces us to manually carry out all the agricultural activities.

Sustainable

We manage the olive groves with conservative agronomic techniques that generate a positive environmental impact. Our 1,200 secular olive trees sequester every year 6.2 tons of carbon dioxide, more than that generated during all the stages of oil production.

Nutraceutical

The difficulties in growing our high-altitude olive groves are compensated by the quality of the oil which has a higher concentration of antioxidants useful for slowing cellular aging down and preventing degenerative diseases, breast cancer, bowel or prostate cancer.

Cold-extracted within a few hours from the harvest of the olives of 501 secular trees of Cultivar Itrana, up high in the hills, over terraced lands, implementing organic techniques.
