The extra virgin olive oil Feudo Vagliasindi is obtained from Nocellara etnea, a cultivar used both as an olive oil and as a table olive. Our olive grove, covering about 6 hectares, is located in the territory of Randazzo, in province of Catania, at 620 meters above sea level, at the feet of Etna. The ventilated climate and the volcanic soil constitute a "unicum", capable of giving our extra virgin olive oil unrepeatable characteristics: golden yellow color with green reflections, fruity smell, aromatic flavor, in a perfect balance between bitter and spicy and a maximum total acidity expressed in oleic acid, not exceeding 0.6 grams per 100 of oil.
Harvesting and milling
The harvest of olives is carried out in the first ten days of November, directly from the plant, by hand combing the crowns or with electric tools and harvesting nets, in order to prevent the olives from mixing with those already on the ground for some time. The maximum yield of the olives in oil does not exceed 20%, extracted thanks to mechanical crushers (kneaders), the milling of which is preceded by the separation of the leaves using aspirators and by an accurate washing of the olives, which subsequently pass on vibrating grates that eliminate water , residues of leaves and foreign bodies. The pasta of olives from Nocellara etnea remains in the kneader for about fifty minutes, while the temperature of the water in the external cavity must ensure that the olive paste being processed does not exceed 27° C. (cold pressing) so that the nutritional and physical characteristics of the extra virgin olive oil remain unchanged.
Nutritional and organoleptic properties
Thanks to its chemical, physical and organoleptic characteristics, Feudo Vagliasindi extra virgin olive oil is particularly appreciated for its high nutritional value. Equipped with a high degree of digestibility, it also has an important antioxidant and anti-radical power, thanks to the "olive polyphenols", able to protect our body from various pathologies such as arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases and skin damage due to long exposure to solar radiation.
