  • My thoughts

This is the last card of the last product in the wine list, but is certainly not the least in terms of importance. I love producing oil, but unfortunately I don't make very much.

The olive tree is as much a part of the land as the vineyard and producing oil is like when I cook pasta with raw tomatoes and fresh basil in the summer. It does not ferment; once it is pressed, it is left to settle and then, with the new year, it is bottled. It does not go into reduction as with some wines, but is immediately ready for use. It is currently the only bottle we produce, and on the label there is a reference to my lovely daughter Enrica, aka Kiki. I have written: "Little Kiki, my daughter, chose this as a condiment for her food", and I don't know why, but I always considered this bottle of oil to be her very own.
