Our story

Extra virgin oil from Calabria

The Mancini family for generations have dedicated their time to agriculture and, in particular, extra virgin olive oil from Calabria, under the sun, in the hills between the Tyrrenian sea and Monte Mancuso.

This is an approximately 70 hectare farm of which 37 hectares are dedicated to olive production in Serra, Campodorato and Porta Vecchia.

The olive groves contain exclusively Carolea olives which is typical of southern Italy, in particular Calabria. Most of the trees are centuries old with the addition of a few young trees.

The groves are in the hills which overlook the Tyrrenian sea and range from 100 to 500 metres above sea level.
